Splitting maul re-handle

After after over twelve years hard use, my splitting maul handle broke. Not bad for a cheap £15 one from a farmers store. This has done an incredible amount of work over the years splitting all my firewood for the house. My heating and hot water is produced by the wood I fell, convert and dry, so its a bit of big deal when this chap goes out of action.

So following the same process for the axe handles, but on a larger scale using splitting wedges, Axe, and a shave horse for much of the work, I made another from some nice local Ash and wedged with Oak.

Ready to rock for hopefully another dozen years or more.
