    Thanks for this really helpful thread, Ashley. The handle gave out on my trapper's axe, so today I finally got round to cutting down a good
    straight ash from which I split out a piece of a quarter-section for my new handle.Just gotta shape it and fit it now, but I have one question...
    where you drove the two oak wedges at top, I assume you first sawed a kerf in the top of the handle to accept them?
    Thanks,
    Jack.
