Loose axe handles are not only a nuisance, they are also potentially very dangerous. This course teaches you to play it safe:
  • What should you look out for when choosing the wood for a handle?
  • Which handle do you use for which tool?
  • What surface treatment do handles need?
  • Our workshop supervisor has acquired a thorough knowledge of this topic over the years, which he will share on the course. From a blank, you will make a handle that is fitted individually to your hand, set it and secure it. Please bring any tools which need handles fitting
  • Please bring axe heads for the workshop!
  • Please also note our workshop „Forging an outdoor axe” which takes place a day before this workshop.
