Ideas and Projects I'm Working On

Ideas and Projects I'm Working On

Hello My names Hexen this blog is for me to track and update my different projects that I'm planning / currently working on. i plan to try and update all my projects with what I've been doing here before I add them over (in a more polished form) at medievalcrafter.com. So lets get started.

Currently I've been working on and off (with a lot of time off) on a replica medieval axe


I've actually have the shape pretty close but I'm still working on sanding out the deep scratches before I try and inlay the head of the axe.



Another Project I've been working on is carving a wooden spoon. I don't have any pictures of it at the moment But I will be updating that soon. 


A few other things I've been researching. Most of the links don't really have anything in them but I will be updating them as quick as I can.


Well I guess that pretty much covers what I have going on at the moment.

Medieval Crafter is a site, blog, and forum about crafts from before the 17th century; any culture is open for discussion. No "specific" date is supposed to be inferred from the name. 

The goal of this site is to bring medieval and ancient techniques and objects into the modern world. 



Periods this site focuses on:

Classical  Antiquity the times before the Middle Ages within recorded history. This usually is referring to ancient Roman and Grecian civilizations. 
The Middle Ages (medieval period) was from around the 5th century and ended around the beginning of the 14th century. 
The Renaissance followed the Middle Ages from the 14th century to the 17th century. 

So let's start learning, exploring, and crafting our way back in time.
