  1. Froe - leaf spring and red oak

    A friend made three froes from leaf springs. In exchange for making three handles, I got one of them. Took a piece of inch-and-a-half square red oak, cut it into roughly 17" pieces, planed them square and then to octagons, then used a spokeshave to taper the ends to fit the froes. Two quick...
  2. Shop Made Traditional Froe and Mallet (Riving axe)

    I made a froe (riving axe) and mallet for myself using wood from a tree that fell in our yard, and an old lawnmower blade. I used my angle grinder to shape the blade, which took a while because a lawnmower blade is not perfectly straight. After much sweat and grinding, I bolted it to a handle...

  4. Miniature Shaving Horse made from Walnut

    I made this miniature shaving horse from walnut with hand tools and used no metal fasteners to assemble it. The butterfly splice is beech wood. It measures about 11 inches long and 5 1/2 inches tall. It does work and it was lots of fun to make.
  5. Froe for splitting wood - post

  6. Carved spoon with a Twist

    I had this black walnut limb….and had just seen a guy on DIY making spoons…. I used a hatchet and froe to split out the handle, ensuring long grain fibers from heel to toe. I initially shaped the bowl and handle with rotary burrs, but completed the spoon with carving tools and sandpaper. The...
  7. Cedar chest

    A cedar chest we made with the customer's name burned into the lid. 36" L X 18" Deep & 20" tall. with a poly satin finish. I am not sure if I like the satin finish better or the gloss finish, the satin finish looks a little more elegant to me.

  9. Hand-Hewn Picture Frame

    This picture frame was built by hand using wood from a storm-damaged poplar tree. The process started with a section of the log that was riven into smaller 'boards' using a froe. The boards were allowed to air dry (the poplar quickly began to change from green shades to light brown) and notches...
  10. Wearable bentwood ring - Oak

    This wooden ring began with a thin strips of oak that was steamed and bent into a circle, so that the grain runs around the circumference of the ring. The piece was glued with a waterproof poly adhesive, and the stip ends were fine sanded, to conceal the seam as much as possible. The result...
  11. My First Not a Bowl

    This started as my first attempt to carve a bowl. Right from the start, it became more of a learning experience than a project that would end with a nice bowl. I used wedges to split the log, and it did not split down the middle as I hoped. This piece came off as roughly a C shape. I decided...
  12. Salt&Pepper

    Curves and straight lines, walnut and maple, far east meets Crafstman style. Contradiction is my creative goal.

  14. Hand Tools
    Hello all, I recently bought this tool at a flea market, but haven't been able to identify what it is. The handle is about 90 degrees to the blade, which is ax like. I thought perhaps its a type of heavy duty draw knife or a froe, but have been unable to find any other pictures of tools that...

    Reading Rusticwood, the other day, I rememebered this web site. I noticed one of our Jocks was going to make his own froe. This may help.
