Twisting log
« on: June 19, 2017, 09:46:51 PM »
We built a log cabin last 2 years. Got a problem with one log. It is the second from the bottom next to the door buck.
It is a 8x10 . The last ft or so has a nasty  twist about a inch out .developing. It is held with screws by the buck as well as down to the log below and the log above. It is causing the log above it to twist out. I am contemplating cutting it out and replace it with a short 2 ft piece. Any thoughts.

It's one of the reasons I prefer to work with dry stuff, it has showed its' bad habits beforehand. You might be able to get a stiff sawzall blade like a Milwaukee "axe" blade in the horizontal joints and kerf away the high parts of the twist to help keep it from jacking the lateral joint in the log above and below, then grind/plane the faces back to a tolerable plane.
