Building with Hand Tools
« on: January 06, 2015, 09:00:46 PM »
Found this great film from Finland of a crew building a log home using only hand tools in the traditional style. Sorry for the language, to all the non-Finish speakers out there, but it's greta just to watch.

Fantastic! Thanks for posting. But talking about the old methods, I read that the old fashioned thatched roofs are the big thing in Great Britain where 1,000 thatchers now ply that ancient and honorable trade.
