John Foreman is an expert hand hewer. He uses three sorts of axe: the chopping axe that cuts deep for felling trees; the scoring axe for preparing the log for the broad axe by scoring a line and making chips; and a broad axe for removing the chips made by the scoring axe and smoothing the log. John builds log homes, sells hand hewn logs, gives demonstrations and runs workshops.
He is a very talented fiddle player. Check handhewing.com
