    Decided to complete a project I've been lagging on. I had a bag of leather scraps and a Council tool Hudson Bay axe, so I decided to make a leather mask for it and remove the pain and then reprofile the head.

    I know it's very very crude, but I have no skills. Hopefully my next one will be better.

    I'm really lazy so I just decided to use pop rivets on it. Just coated the axe with paint stripper and just the waiting game now until I take it to the belt grinder. Then I'll sand down the handle and coat it with boiled linseed oil.

    I'll be uploading a video of this on my channel this weekend, if anyone's interested: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpSMxjpWFk_B3Np7cnkjnBA

    Got most of the paint removed. Tomorrow I"m taking it to the sander and make a look pretty like a Velicut. Then sand the handle and oil.
