Since the temp bumped up to 62F today, I loaded the 30 gal ash can into the FEL of the Kubota B2150 and headed for the woods this morning. A muddy mess to say the least. While there I cut a maple sapling to make a handle for my old peeve head. Too much snow to get back where there are some nice ash saplings. I cut this maple and trimmed it down with my draw plane to fit the head, and then hung it over the wood boiler to dry for the next week. and then I will refine the fit. Far from perfect, but it will likely not see much of any use. My steel Cant/log lifter, and the cant that I redid the handle in a few days back will get the work done.
This one will likely be added to my display of antique hand tools.

It's a very handy tool. I still use the cant hook that that dad bought on a farm sale about 47 years ago. It looks like one in picture but has a 5 foot handle.

"I see said the blind carpenter as he picked up his hammer and saw."

I never looked at the peavey that closely...makes perfectly good sense.
Thanks

Dad used to use a piece of broken window glass to fine tune hammer handles; got smaller shavings.

my dad always kept a few pieces of broken glass wrapped in paper for fine detail woodwork

My ol' man gave me both his peavey and his cant hook.

I believe yours is a cant hook as it has no spike on the end.

As I understand it, peaveys were used mostly by loggers floating logs in the river.

Why my ol' man had one of each I don't know and it's too late to ask now.

The spike just isn't in the bottom yet. I had to forge one out with the torch and hammer after I did a rough fit on the handle. As seen in pic of my cant and peeve, cants have a lip on the foot to grip the logs. This is a peeve head with no lip as seen in the pic. The spike drives in to the bottom of handle and expand the handle the same as a wedge on an ax head, and locks the head on.

I'm not sure of the exact words but the old logger's had an expression, "Throw a crook in 'er'". Meaning lean into the peavee handle hard enough to bend it. You already have that.

I guess I will have to put the cruel to the back so I put a "straightening" to it.

Here in SJ we would call that a true piece of "Piney" art work. Kinda regional thing. A piney is the backwoods natives of old time south jersey. Very rustic and home brew looking. Some day wayyyyy in the future an antique dealer will sell that to a collector of Americana for their new rustic cabin to hang over the living room bay window. And I wonder how much money they will spend on it. Whatcha think??
