Log Workshops

Tentative Dates

Learn the skills and techniques needed to build a hewn log cabin from scratch. Practice how to: hew logs with axe, adze and broadaxe; mark and
cut dovetail corner notches; peel bark with drawknives; move logs with peavey and timber carriers; and raise logs. Shingle splitting, chinking, tool-sharpening and other styles of log notching will be demonstrated. Students will attempt to complete all aspects of log cabin building in this week.
