It took ten slices to get the butt flare reduced to a dimension that would allow me to halve the log from one end to another.
The cut was started a wee bit (metric increment) above the pith, 'cause Magicman has always said the I shouldn't split the pith.  :D  :D

The deck work in progress - being edge matched on three log 'joists'.
After this is complete, we will start on a 60' deck.

That is quite a storage shed. Curious...how are you attaching the posts to the slab?

The posts are sitting on treated 1x material, but not fastened to the slab.  The sill plate is fastened with J-bolts.

Here's a photo of the cruck frame we raised on Friday; the first one we've done with curved cruck braces besides the already curved cruck blades and tie beams. We hope to do another next year at Heartwood.
Two of the cruck blades had their curve ripped with a chain saw jig (the others were hewn), and the offcuts were wide enough to get curved braces for the walls, too. It was nice to be able to use what would otherwise be waste.
This frame will be a porte cochre with the sills raised on 3' stone walls.

Hewing rafters for a barn repair.

 

 (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)  

 

Dave, I see all your chop marks are in the same direction.  Can you explain what happened before this and what happens next?  I'm trying to understand the hewing on some old barn timbers where there are chop marks all in the same direction. Actually I think they are probably over-chop marks, meaning they went past the snap line before taking the broad axe to it.  Did you do a rough hewing first to remove most of the material, and then come back and chop (score) for a final hewing with the broad axe?
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!
