I have a new appreciation of hewing after doing a bit @ the TTRAG event. To look at a big barn that's all hewn will be evermore humbling now.

How many hundreds of feet were hewn to make a plain old barn???

Maybe the farmer had strong motivations that kept his axe a swinging. It was his livelihood, his survival.

Then again, slaves might have done a majority of the hewing in some areas. Accounts read that pit-sawing of boards was done by slaves.

Maybe hewing should be regular training at boot camp! TF barracks?
