The Axecrafter Course

Axecrafter Course

Two-Day complete axe workshops held in North Wales

£185.00 per person – Includes Hultafors axe for each participant)

The Axecrafter is a new skill-specific course from North Wales outdoor specialist Original Outdoors. In one weekend it comprehensively covers the safe use of an axe in a woodland and forest setting, axe selection, care and maintenance and practical skills tuition from experienced instructors.
An axe is a vital tool for working and living in forested areas, and one of the oldest tools adopted by our ancestors. We created this course to comprehensively teach students in a realistic setting, and allow them to get direct practical experience of a wide range of axe types and fully understand this vital bushcraft and woodsman tool.
The course takes place in a private 90-acre site near Ruthin, North Wales and is delivered over two days to ensure that all aspects of axe use and care are fully explored.

Free camping is available on site in an expedition-style camp.

This course director is experienced green woodworker Doug Don of Heartwood Treen.

The course includes:

  • Axe selection and choosing the tool for the task
  • Felling trees, limbing/snedding and cross-cutting timber
  • Splitting and riving wood
  • Sharepning and axe maintenance
  • Axe handle repairs and replacement handles
  • Use of side axe and related tools
  • Small axe projects
  • Chopping blocks
