Making a hatchet.
I am going to make a hatchet for a school project. It only has to be functional for a couple of uses, maybe 10, but I don't have access to a block of iron or steel. What I'm wondering is if I can make an aluminum head with a steel tip. My dad says that it would bend, but I'm not so sure. Also, if you know of any links to instructions or metal suppliers in California/USA please post them.
