Interesting way to make shingles. They must not have any cedar of there, eh?

Very interesting video Jim. For the first time I understood what are shingles. Such videos should be carefully preserved.

Thanks Jim, that was a fun video. It’s the first time I’ve seen or heard about knocking on trees to determine their density and grain direction. I bought a book; Green Woodwork by Mike Abbot a few years ago and learned many of the things shown in this video. I mainly used the skills to split logs and it was quite a revelation to me how easy it is to work with wet wood. I highly recommend the aforementioned book and it is still available on Amazon.com (although a quick search showed it to be pretty high priced).

They sure do make it look easy. It would take me 6 mos. just to shingle a dog house.
But…..I do have a very nice old forged froe and a dogwood froe maul.
That was a very interesting vid. Too many of the classic skills are being lost. It also makes one appreciate those who came before.
