Aluminum axe

I sometimes shake my head whenever I come across a video which has lots of potential, yet ends in utter disappointment.

This is one such video. The sheer amount of time Jimmy put into making the axe handle has to be complimented, yet the execution is just a bit off. At the end you get to see him swinging it to fell a rotten tree. Yet it takes him a long time to clear the wedge. Either the axe is too heavy and Jimmy struggles with the heft and runs out of gas or else he just isn't used to swinging a double bit axe and continually misses the "sweet spot" needed to rapidly remove chunks of wood.
