When I work with logs, I use inklines.

My buddy is a traditional Japanese timberframer, so I've learned to use flexible framing squares and inklines.

Additionally, I've learned that true Japanese timberframers sit down to hone their iron, rather than do it at a table.

It seems simple, but it's a huge difference.

Such nuances are what I strive to learn.

It's going to take my entire life, and I'll never have learned everything, but I'm OK with that.

All of this fine craftsmanship and tech talk is making me yearn to get back in the shop and craft me some fine furniture.

Not that I'm gonna end my road trip early or anything foolish like that. I'm willing to wait out the urges. (Insert here: "All good things in their own time", and other suitable cliches.)

In the meantime, please carry on!

Sasha's Gypsy Adventure Caravan. I'm building an Adventure Wagon complete with deep soaking tub and wood fired pizza oven. The design is 'inside-out' with rooms on four sides and a wall tent on top.
The plan is to go feral. See you at the crags.

Inside Out Adventure Wagon. 95 s.f. turns into 1096 s.f. of Cafe Olé. Cafe Bar Gelato. Full bath with deep soak tub. Marble wood-fired pizza oven. To quote my buddy Rowe, who kept Chamonix cool "Yo soy Montañero y tengo una motosierra muy grande". Hasta la vista locos.

This house is kind of a modern affair. 2/12 shed roof to 200# snow load that won't slide. It has a couple 10 foot overhangs that have LSL beams inside the roof structure and some cool hot dip galvy struts that combine with some cantilever action to seemingly defy reality.

Here I am setting up the first one.

Well, Reilly, I'm self employed and I live in one of the last bastions of freedom. I can choose my own risk level, when that changes, I go flip hotcakes at the mine with my regulation hairnet.

We grew tired of staining the deck over and over. So we put down maintenance free Trex. Of course we got the batch the was defective. So we have to replace the entire deck again with the new materials. My husband was tempted to make the whole pattern simpler, but the project sucked him back into the art form. The sunburst, the diagonal cuts, all that will be part of the replacement, too.

It must be finished by month's end since there is a big picnic scheduled for our house. Let's see if all 27 railings are finished. We also have to clean and refill the hot tub. The water pump needs to be installed for the water feature - after he finds some ricks to complete the mountain stream effect. The tadpoles that were evicted from the water feature now need to get evicted from the pool, the pool needs to be cleaned and running. I am not confident it will all get done it ime.
