I tried my hand at woodworking years ago and finishing tools were to make fine adjustments to your workpiece. You'd use scrapers to level and compress the top layer prior to applying varnish and such. But a finishing axe? Can't imagine what that's for if not to deal with a project you've become disgusted with.
I checked out this website because it was found in a sports magazine. Maybe, I thought if I got a better axe, it would make life easier. Well, as you can see its expensive and outright not what I needed. I realize these are custom or special axes, but come on... -----Willy
