Sometime last year, I think it was, I watched a video by a very talented craftsman by the name of Niklas Karlsson from Sweden. In the video he broke his Axe handle and I remember thinking at the time a replacement handle would make a good project. It wasn't until recently that I needed to make one for one of my old Dad's Axe heads that I found at the bottom of a pile. I do not have a problem with using seasoned or green wood, if I use green, then I wait for it to dry and then assemble it, this piece happens to be seasoned and not a particulaly good piece at that. Only one of the quarters were straight grained and the growth rings are about 5 to 8 per inch which is OK for Ash grain orientation is parallel to the head but it doesn't have to be.
