Getting a handle on it

Will Lisak, of Royalton, middle, hammers home a wedge to complete a new handle for his broad ax as Nevan Carling, of Hartford, Conn., works on his own handle and Adam Adeane, of East Poultney, looks on with his dog Wiley at right, outside Lisak’s Royalton, Vt., home on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2024. “It kind of was a bet to see if I could make a handle in less than an hour,” said Lisak. The pair, who are interested in using pre-industrial building methods, wanted to re-hang their ax heads before going to hew a sill beam for a client. (Valley News - James M.
