I fool around with old barn wood reclaimed locally here in Illinois and when you find a beam that was within reach of the standing farmer on the ground or the loft, probably gonna have some iron in it.  But the handmade square nails are interesting.     
  Those are some huge timbers and really vintage.    Interestingly,  the original structure from that era would not have had a single nail or spike in it.  All mortise tenon and pegs usually.   It was the generations of practical use that " improved" the barns and buildings and you can sometimes date the improvements by looking at the nails...hand forged or later production wire type nails.
  Hope your physical and business climate both swing in your favor as we all sure enjoy your craftsmanship and vision.

Fast forward a year. The view from my front yard just now. This fire was set by an arsonist yesterday at noon. Thousands of folks without power - OR WATER. Not good. Around 102 degrees. Lots of hurt to go around...

They sure did and he is in an air conditioned jail cell while his victims suffer. This guy did a big loop by my place then east, then north, flinging out road flares in 105 degree heat starting a half dozen fires. All but one , the Cranston fire , have been put out by citizens following his car. Two more big fires just started today very close by here that might merge together. Very bad .

California doesn't consider arson to be the use of deadly force or risk of serious bodily injury I take it?

Not trying to start this thread towards the restricted part of the FF,but for every victim that died he should be convicted of each one.
Too bad to see all this going on.

Stay safe out there.  I hope no harm comes your way, or anybody else's for that matter.

I wish I could send some rain you're way.
My mill yard has only dried out completely for around 5 days this summer. Record amounts of rain here. Right now it's so sticky out around the mill I gotta be careful to not lose my boots.
