From time to time it is worth examining the practices employed by others further afield to see just what techniques and practices they employ in their woodlands to fell (axe & saw), convert (hewing using double bit axe & adze), frame (draw string, auger, brace & bit, slick & chisel) and build using white oak & poplar timbers.

Joshua Stevens and his wife have made and posted a number of informative videos on U Tube covering :-

Though some of the methods employed by Joshua are different from those used here in Oxfordshire he demonstrates how adopting a considered and deliberate approach can produce good results.
