Any OGers make log furniture?

I haven’t, bet we’re going to fix that

Seems pretty fun. Except for the peeling logs part. That’ll probably suck.
I have a little corner of the property that has a ton of 4-6 inch pines that needs to be seriously thinned. I’m thinking that I drop, limb, and peel a bunch and then just let them dry in my shed for a while, fun winter time project.

Based on your last thread, I fear you might be attacking us with those logs.

Those logs are too little to hurt an OGer.

What. The. Fuck.

I never would have guessed in a million years that my beloved MM would read instructions! Very disappoint.

Every time I talk to you I end up buying a tool.

Our friendship is expensive, lol.

It’s a loophole, those are “plans”, not instructions.

A man is allowed to read plans.

Now it all makes sense! I’m very sorry I doubted you.

May I suggest some reading material to go with the new furniture?

You should be

That tenon bit is awesome- I was just watching a vid on those recently.

I haven’t done anything yet, but like you, I thinned out a handful of dead Ash in the 3"-6" diameter that’s laid up for drying. Ash dries quick, some species may take a couple years before you could use em for fine furniture I’m guessing.

Wow that seems like an awesome project Mountain Medic, very cool hobby! Let us know how it goes with some updates and pics please!

My dad built a poplar log cabin out on the farm. It’s made all out of trees we felled out on our land.

He built it beside a fishing pond we’ve stocked with rainbows for about twenty five or thirty years. It’s aerated so we can ice fish too. I built him a goose/duck blind on the pond too so he can just walk down and blast honkers.

He built a couple of benches out of logs but that’s it so far for furniture.
