Does anyone know where I could get a shaft/handle for a Dutch hoe? I was given a lovely big heavy steel hoe head a while ago. The handle though was  home made from an old brush handle! I've seen various tools with hardwood shafts but can't find a replacement.

Thanks for that information.... Do you know any more about the origin of this type of tool?

I find it brilliant for very close delicate weeding between onions. It has two "cutting" edges and can be swept through the soil speedily or the sharp pointed tip is great for removing weed roots from close to plants without causing damage. Helps reduce back-ache too!  ;)
Never keep your wish-bone where your back-bone ought to be.

My dad has a fantastic furniture-makers tool box which he bought 2nd hand years ago. Each of the planes fits into the bottom one right next to the other. They are shapes for different finishes - all are wooden with very sharp blades. Modern equivalent of a router I guess.

The smell from inside the box is wonderful... all the woods that have been worked over the years seem to have left their fragrances behind. As well as planes there are countless other ancient looking tools. It is a snap shot of skills from the past.  :)
