Originally made from stone, then bronze, iron, and now drop forged steel, adzes differ from axes by having its blade set at right angles to the handle. Adzes are used with logs for leveling, shaping, trimming, and removing large portions of waste. We offer adzes made by both Barr and Henry Taylor. See More About Adzes
The axe had its humble beginnings in stone. Axes are the most fundamental of all wood working tools with shapes and designs for basic hewing of timber to specialized trimming. We offer two high quality lines of hand forged Swedish Axes, Hatches, Broad Axes, and Mauls. Gransfors Bruks Axes was established in 1868. Hullts Bruk Axes was established in 1697.

The earliest known record of a drawknife was found in a group of Viking Shipwright’s Tools dating back to 100 AD and is now on display at the State Historical Museum in Stockholm Sweden. The drawknife is used to shave the bark and cambium from the logs. We offer many different brands of drawknives: Barr, Dixie, Gränsfors Bruks, and Peavey Brand. See More About Drawknives
(Or Pevies) Similar to the Cant Hook, but has an iron spike attached to the working end of the pole. It was invented by a blacksmith named Joseph Peavey around 1870. The spike allows more control over the handling of the logs, but may cause more damage to the log surface. We offer two different brands, Dixie and Nalco. See More About Peaveys

Tenon CuttersTenon Cutters
The tool that cuts tenons on the end of rails and spindles. For stair rails, use the 3" length. Requires use of 1/2" or 3/4" drill, depending on size of cutter. Two high carbon steel blades, flares the material end about 60 degrees. The two smaller sizes come with 1/2" shafts; the four larger cutters come with 3/4" shafts. The recommendation is to use a 3/4" electric drill to power the 1-1/2", 2, and 2-1/2" tenon cutters because the drill should have a maximum RPM of 500 for both safety and limiting tool overload.
