I have said it before and I will keep on saying again... beautiful craftsmanship and an absolutely gorgeous building. I really love it and wish I had the patience to do that kind of post and beam construction. I saw one under construction on the way to Cecil's, it was somewhere off the 95 in Mass - right off I thought of this project and was wondering how it was going. Now we know. Simply gorgeous.
I like that old huge B&D 1/2" drill as well. Neat tool and lots of power. I like your clamps -- them will work nicely. The wooden mallet - is that an ECE mallet?
Thanks for all of the warm comments guys. Glad you like the building.
Rudi...yes that old B&D drill was my Gramp's. Great tool, and as you said..lots of power. You can really get hurt if you aren't holding on tightly. The mallet is European Beech and made in England by a company called Crown Hand Tools.
Thanks again everybody!
