Today I thought I’d show you a few of the tools of the woodsman which I have slowly acquired here and there over the past few years. Two of the tools were purchased second-hand for very little money, and one was free.
So far I have collected:
- 36″ bow saw
- Bark knife/drawknife
- Full-size 3.5 pound poll axe
- Full-size 4 pound double-bit axe
- Log tongs
- Gloves 😉
By no means is the group shown here a complete set of woods tools. There are plenty of glaring omissions (splitting maul, steel splitting wedge, rope, brush axe, peavey, adze, the list goes on and on). It merely shows what I have accumulated casually so far. I will continue to pick up more tools as I come across them. While I do use some of the above tools from time to time, I am mainly holding on to them for future use (making firewood, log construction, big projects etc.) at a future homestead.
