Traditional Finnish Log Homebuilding – Hand-tools

I am putting the “finishing” touches on our final Sweet 16 Knife Madness contest between Morakniv and Boker, but I had a second and wanted to get something fresh onto the blog. I think I found the above video on the Axe Junkies facebook page. The above version is a time-lapse, the full version can be seen below the jump.

I have done a little shaping with an axe, and as a teen I helped my Great-Uncle build a log cabin, so I know how hard it really is. These guys make it look easy. I am particularly impressed with how they pegged the floor boards.

Truly Jedi-Master level hand-tool use.
