Resume cabin building

Nice change in the weather and cabin building is back on and in full swing. After a few weeks break starting again brought back memories of teaching when students returned from semester break or the summer off. Seems like we forgot everything! Started out warming up by layout and cutting all the remaining 6x6's to the correct lengths. Was surprised in a nice way to have minimal waste and got an extra round out of the 6x6 supply we had before we will have to use 5x5's.

After a bit of practice Sue and John got the hang of it and started in.

After the laying out the top of the dovetail it is notched with the chainsaw then Sue went to work chipping it out.

At the end of about 8 hours there you have it so far. Square, level and parallel. Nice!
