Tommy and The Garden Stakes

Tommy sat down on the wood toolbox against the garage wall and watched his grandfather sharpen points onto the ends of Birch sticks with a small hatchet.

The old man carefully selected each stick from the unsharpened pile beside him with his left hand. He positioned it with a slight slant on the chopping block in front of him and chopped away at the end of the stick with the hatchet in his right hand. As he chopped with his right hand, he slowly rotated the stick with his left. Every so often he would pick it up and closely examine the emerging point, putting it down and chopping away, picking it up and looking at it until he was satisfied with the point. He then laid the garden stake in the finished pile on his right and picked up another stick from the original pile.
