The Workshop - Log Cabins (2)

Lots of Sanding

 ["Four log cabins w 5 by 5-inch base"]

One Log Cabin is made up of many small bits and pieces, e., 14 short logs, 14 long logs, a base, two triangles (one w entry hole), 4 roof slats, one ridge pole, a chimney and assorted pieces of trim. So, the job of measuring, cutting and sanding the pieces for 7 log cabins can easily take a part-timer like me 2 - 3 afternoons, 2 - 3 hours at a time. Not that i begrudge the time. I have the time. But I do begrudge the cold!

["Three larger log cabins with 5 by 6-inch base"]

["I found lovely barnboard for the two triangles on this birdhouse"]

The sanding is complete, so this afternoon I will be able to assemble this lovely batch of pine, barnboard and cedar birdhouses in a jiff, say, 2 - 3 hours at a relaxed, chilly pace.

PS the temperature went as high as 10 degrees Celsius yesterday inside half of the workshop. Downright balmy!
