Here's another one of Ms. H's homemade things, an ax tote. Modern people forget how incredibly dangerous it has always been to suffer what today are considered minor accidents. A classic green-horn mistake out in the woods is letting saws and axes and other tools lie around, waiting for you to fall on them. Thus the ax-tote. Don't let that thing lie on the ground.
There's a Turkish saying about the forest being cut down, and the trees thinking to themselves, well, at least the shaft of the ax is one of us. A saying to remember, I'm afraid and sorry to say, whenever somebody insists on being ruled and lorded over by "their own".
