Nice work.  I was just reading one of  Roy Underhill's books the other night and adzes were covered thoroughly.  You did a great job.  One difference I noted was that he mentioned that they should have pickaxe style handles so you can get the handle out of the way for sharpening the bevel.  I suspect he was more interested in using a large sandstone grinding wheel for sharpening.


Unless I'm much mistaken you've made what he calls a shipwrights lipped adze.  Really nice work.
