We recently came across this fantastic book about early American logging tools.   Its focus is on all the wonderful old tools used to log old growth trees during the early days in the Pacific Northwest.

This is our staff copy, it has a few wrinkles and dog ears 🙂


It has over 330 pages of high quality detailed photos.  Along with photos there is information about manufacturers, use, history and a price guide.  These old tools make fantastic decorations in a finished log home, and this book helps you know more about them, and what to pay for them.  You can see and learn about:

  • Axes
  • Crosscut saws
  • Springboards
  • Oil bottles
  • Undercutters
  • Blasting wedges
  • Marlin spikes
  • Drag saws
  • Pickaroons/hookaroons
  • Old sales flyers
  • Old logging photographs
  • Photos of entire tool collections
  • And more.


If you like old tools and history, then you’ll love this book.  You can look at any page in the book and see that Author Kevin Johnson is a man passionate about passing on his knowledge and love for old logging tools — two things instilled in him by his own father.  We thank Kevin for the work he has done to preserve this history for future generations.
