Hello from a noob in Portland

Hi all, good to be here. Been pining away for years, wanting to make blades. Was given an antique shake froe that was cracked at the handle so decided to make a seax. Super stoked to get this done, will post pics when its all together
Thanks all. Just about finished my first build. Cut the blade out of an old froe, using a pattern that Black Beard Projects emailed me.
