I’m building a Log Cabin with 6×6’s I’m finding timbers with twists in them. Any ideas how I can get this out with planning or ????
Thanks for any help

I’m assuming the timbers are way long, too long to handle using a typical jointer/planer routine (?); I can only come up with using one of those hand held planers, and tie it in with using winding sticks to get it close enough. Hope you get a better answer…
