The Adze

Ed Archie NoiseCat

 

A tool of creation

Ed Archie NoiseCat

I use an adze in my work. Most carvers do. I arc the adze down and towards me, running with the grain to shape my wood.

The adze is a close cousin of the most primitive tools known to man. Our ancient ancestors fashioned their carving blades from stone, shell and bone.

I first saw an adze when I was a small child in British Columbia. Some of my band-members  were carving a canoe. When I first picked-up an adze to use it, I was already in my twenties, and it felt familiar to me.
