I'm a professional builder. My profession is to repair old wooden structures with traditional metodes and materials. Toys, furniture, windows and the rest of the house. I'm 46 and married. I studied in 1989-92. I have a smal company, Tiny-e.
My wife worked earlier on ICU but now on KNF. We have 7 Doro, 4 cats and 2 Standard bred. We live in a log house dated back to 1920ish. The nearest bigger place, 50km, has 200,000 inhabitants and is among the 6 biggest cities in Finland. Last winter was very long, 7-8 months and the coldest days ~-32C. We have a central heating system in the house and we heat up with firewood.

My dogs as co-worker. They are often the not-so-silent budys but they are the most loyal partners you can get. Just an example. If you haven't eaten your bread and you have to go to the shower, toilet, barn etc. for a time period that is longer than just a moment, I can promise you the bread isn't there anymore when I come back. I will have 7 budys looking at each other. If they could speak they would say: "Who. Me?".

Hi there. I’m a professional builder and I’m fasinating in lumberjocks of all the info I can get in woodworking. I have got some good tips during the years from Lj and now I thought I could join and get some good practise in English too!

Does any of you have a thought where I can get a new part of my delta tablesaw table top? It’s made of aluminium. 3 pieces 10×190mm. Somebody has droped it in its early days. It’s a Delta 36-520 or something. The blade is 250/30mm. and the motor 1500w.

I also live in a log home, but is a 2000 vintage. It is built from red pine in what we call the Scandinavian scribed method and Swedish coped corners. Is that how your home is as you are in Scandinavia. I’ll post a picture.

Literarly Finland is not a part of Skandinavia. The name comes from a long mountain (what’s the name of it?) that is betwene Norway and Sweden. The name of the mountain is Skanderna. The way your house is built is very old. Those corners were built at least 1000 years ago. In our house the name of the corner is in finnish lukkonurkka- that means lock corner. If you copy paste the word and make an image search with google or similar you will see how it is done. I’ll try to attach a foto here I took earlier. Haven’t done so yet but let’s see. Can’t find any way to do it. Lol

I googled it. So does it look like a dovetail joint with a locking notch?
