Ever wanted to try log peeling? Come on down and try out a draw knife. This is the same technique used hundreds of tears ago. A big blade and a lot of elbow grease.
Our log projects are always hand peeled for a truly one of.a kind finish. This keeps the grain beautiful and adds a truly handmade quality to the logs.
We can also sand them down if you prefer a more fine finish. But me personally, I like em natural and a little rough. I'm leaving the charred knot holes as a salute to the fire that brought these logs to become my home.
#tbt#throwbackthursday In my younger days I spent a lot of time swinging an axe competing in Logging Sports. It was all about accuracy and efficiency. I worked hard on my technique and I developed a lot of muscle memory. A good smooth swing that hit hard and hit where I wanted. These days when I pick up a sledge hammer it’s easy to fall right back into that same swing, especially when I am really getting with it, like when I am making hardy tools. Full extension, long stroke and finish with my knees. #pacificsawandanvil
