Learn the basics of restoring and re-hanging axe heads. This three-day workshop runs students through the process of refinishing, hanging, and sharpening axe heads along with outfitting them with a leather sheath. Each student receives an old hatchet head on the first night and leaves with a finished camp hatchet ready to work for many years.
