this is my favorite youtube timber framer:

he uses all hand tools (except for the little tractor to transport his trees)

i love his old school crane (in first vid)

i thought his craftsmanship needed more viewers.

Thank you very much for the link. I thoroughly enjoyed watching "Mr. Chickadee" 's videos!

Just wondering how he kept the wall from sliding when he started raising it, I didn't see anything to keep it from sliding. Watching him use the brace and bit sure brought back bad memories for me, I hated those things.

I enjoyed the videos, but I wish I could have seen how he flatten the logs. Thanks for sharing this

I just like to build with wood and a means to save money by doing it myself.
I've been building things out of wood for 40 years and I'm still just an amateur.

That's pretty cool. Added to my subscription list. I'd pay for a cd of nothing but the sound of those birds and him working wood. Even my wife found it all very relaxing

If you get the chance, look for videos of Dick Proenneke, "Alone in the Wilderness". He built a cabin and lived in it for 30 years, mostly alone in Alaska.

I was amazed at the hand sawn boards he made for shelves. They looked perfectly straight and even thickness. I have trouble hand sawing a straight line through a 2x4.
