Lapping Back-side Blues



  1. Beautiful ax Ernest! I spent about 3 hours lapping a huge William Butcher chisel I found when I tore the roof of of the house. If you want it to work right, that’s where you start, I really should touch my own not so pretty broadax up, I short changed it when I got it, and it could cut better.

  2. You go up on the roof, hammer and chisel in hand for some trimming up work, get called down from up there and never see your chisel again, an ever so tragic and yet not uncommon story John. That broadaxe I have left it and left it until now I have a deadline and don’t know if it will be ready in time.
