Peeled the Birch Logs today that I cut down last weekend. They need to be peeled while they are still green to get the desired “Rustic” look. Finally got to use the antique draw knife that I picked-up at an antique shop awhile back for around 1/4 the price of new for the quality of blade it has, worked real nice.
This is the second step to making the Rustic Bed frame for Camp that has been kicking around in my head for ever it seems. 1st of which I posted in the wood forum last weekend, Harvesting!
Now I’ll let them dry a couple months and make this a mid winter project.
