Your gonna need to build a table to mount that drill in or it's gonna tear your arm off the first time one of those tennon cutters grabs ahold of a knot.

Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

that red strap is that how the log is held down? also i can't see with all the shavings how does the drill slide into the log? also any advice on a fast way to skin up logs? i was told try a presure washer but the knots i don't know how i'd smoth em down...mabey a angle grinder. the draw knife takes to long......i might just havve to call a sawmill about some allready done up.

The red strap is to hold the log in place. I would like a better clamping system but just haven't taken the time to design one. I know it's a bad picture for detail the the board that the drill is mounted to is mounted to the long table with a pair of full extension drawer guides. The lever that sticks out is to pull on to move the sled back and forth. I have since gotten rid of the lever because I purchased a tenon cutter that will make an 11" tennon and the lever wouldn't work anymore.

I have no idea of a fast way to skin logs. I'd also heard of a power washer but you'll have to buy a big one. I buy my material already peeled.

I skin alot of diamond willow using yes believe it or not a really sharp knife. once you get under the bark if your knife is really sharp it will slice threw the bark.and expose the wood. i clean any where from 1" to 8" or more depends what im making {around} and sometimes have have pieaces as long as 10' doesnt take very long once you get the hang of it.
