ID:	1360578Finally got some clear weather. Slung the magnet for a couple of hours down the bayou by a long forgotten sawmill.

Why would such a large wood Click image for larger version.

    Nice recoveries. Maybe the wood chisel was used to strip bark off a log before attaching a chain? The chain would get a better bite into a log without bark.
    You can strip bark with an axe but it also damages the wood.

    The chisel would have been used to peel bark and shoe the log it would have had a wooden handle and been very sharp
