Fixing The Maul

The head came off the maul the other day. Thought I should fix it.

I cut down the top of the handle about 3cm. Then I used a plane to shave off some wood so the head would fit. 
After getting it on, I used the small wedge and drove it in with my hammer. 
It still sticks up a bit, but not too much.

It worked fine when I tested it.


  1. That looks suspiciously like a task I carried out lately, except yours looks a little nicer in the end. For lack of appropriate tools, I used a sheath knife to carve the handle down. But, hey, if it works, right?

  2. If it works, and if it is safe, no problem. I had the head fall off my old axe once. Now I am a lot more careful.
