I learned a few things while building eight log cabin birdhouses recently:
Logs are easy to chop with the chop saw. But you need a lot of them. The shop gets very dusty. So I should chop outside. I had to do a lot of hammering. I should say 'yes' to a friend's offer of his air compressor and nail gun. Log cabins use up scrap lumber efficiently. I want to build more of them.
["Can you spot the Port Bruce connection?"]
And as it happens, I have a few more boards handy that will be perfect for logs. And I have an idea concerning a new style of roof for the cabin. And I have another broken hockey stick to chop into interesting perches.
Oh, I know what I'll be doing this afternoon!
