David’s show display of hatchets and axes. The panel at left shows shingle and lathe hatchets (and at the extreme lower right, a shingle-splitting froe believed to be at least 200 years old). The center display features axes. From the top: a double-bitted axe, two Hudson Bay axes, a barn axe, ice axe and others. At the bottom, a west coast felling axe and a broadaxe, used to hew square beams from logs. The display at right consists of axe and hatchet heads found with missing or bad handles.
