Axe hafting and sheath making course.
This two day course taught by Peter from Soulwood Creations will guide you through making your very own carving axe. On the first day you will learn about the right wood for axe handles, how to hang an axe head and carve a faceted ergonomic handle.
On the second day Peter will introduce you to the fundamentals of leather working through making a custom sheath for your axe. These skills such as saddle stitching, edge finishing and staining will enable you to venture on to many different leather projects if you wish to do so in the future.
This course also includes a hand forged axe head that Peter uses for his own axes. You will also learn how to sharpen your axe to a razor edge so you can return home with a perfect tool for all of your future wood carving projects.
