Here are a couple more videos from iawoodsman, this time on the subject of axe practice. It’s nice to have a good set of skills with such a versatile tool. I also like his style: mellow, basic, and to the point.

In the first video he shows how to make a tent stake out of a piece of cherry and how to carve and make shavings for starting a fire.

In the second video he shows how to limb branches (handy for poles and supports) and how to make a pot hook for your campfire.

Click the read-more link for the second video. Again, he’s using a Wetterlings 26″ forest axe.
