Handmade Leather Axe Handles: Part 1 Utility Use

Miriam Schlabach |

In this video, Chuck demonstrates how to create handmade leather axe handles for a better grip when working with your tool. These suede handles can be customized and added to practically anything—hammers, walking sticks, or anything that could use a little more comfort and grip! Chuck shows us how to easily measure and cut the correct length of suede for whatever item you’re working with. Another tip is to use an eye-catching color to keep your axe from blending in against the trees!
