A lot of planing today. Lots of shavings for stove.Got it to very close final thickness. Final thickness will be from about 1 3/4” on bottom to about 1” on top. Transferred pattern to  back. Chisel work to define piercings next.

Second photo I assume? Its an adze. I use it to remove bark and remove excess material. Its a type originated and only seen where I am from. Origins of it are from shipwrights. Once mastered one can remove large chunks of wood or thin shavings like a plane. This one was from a family member. The one on the other thread was from my great grandfather, I only made the handle for it.

Blade looked like an adze.  The project suggested adze.  But the handle completely through me.  Still does!

Here some good reading about it. Unlike other handle types where blade is away from your hand  in this type ones hand is essentially right inside blade, making it act like it is part of it. The direction of hand motion is the same as the cutting direction.Proximity of blade to hand also allows great precision once one gets used to it.

This is one works in a similar principle but has a specific function which was to dress a certain part of the wheel in an oxen cart. Also inherited from a family member.

Up country here folks pay good money just to watch crafts persons like you at fairs and tourist traps. 

 

Right beautiful work. 

 

If you ever get the hankerin' to run a video it would be interesting to see that adze adzing.

That is obviously a hand adz.  I have a couple long handled adzes and I keep an eye out for hand adzes but there aren't prevalent around here.

Sorry didn't realize you asked. They will have to go overseas to be used. They are used with this breed of oxen only found around where I was born. Last two photos was the last one to leave here.

Piercings now completed. More planing on back next for for final thickness and to clean up scrub plane marks. Starting to finalize what to carve on it.

Back and front cleaned of all scrub plane marks and about up to final thickness. Cut off from board referencing how much it has been planed off so far. Cut off will be used next to make  parts that go around oxen’s neck. They will me mortised and tenoned into your main body. Then finally it’s final shape will be cut.

Board is now ripped and edge planed straight and square. Time for the mortises. Mortises and tenons should always be about 1/3 of material thickness. It’s always finally dictated by the closest width mortise chisel one has. Marking gage is set and mortises marked. They will be 2-1/4” deep so tape is put on chisel at that depth. Lots of chopping now.

Mortises are chopped from center towards edges. Chisel must be kept perfectly perpendicular through out. Waste is leveraged out by pushing chisel backwards against bevel . It will make a perfect mortise with clean parallel sides this way. No other tool needed.3DF0BCA6-E5D9-4961-8A0F-02DD5A58EEBF.jpeg.d33d7a3033e75a149bc5232aeab9fe9b.jpeg

Time for the pieces with the tenons. Precision is critical here since strength or the lack of it has all to do with it. Each tenon is fitted to each mortise . Typically these were not glued but just pinned since there was no glue available and if by chance there was it was unreliable. Tenons and shoulders are fine tuned with a shoulder plane a massive heavy plane for its size designed to plane end grain with precision.
Pieces will be shaped and planed to size once installed.
