Hi all,
I want to interject a question. Hope this is the appropriate place. I have hewn a few timbers, and have pretty well followed the score up, hew down thinking. This has been long beams and curved braces. Not until a hewn post was used did I notice that this put any effects of scoring facing up, which is contrary to direction a hand would move "down" a post. For washing or for pleasure. I have no historical reference around me, so kinda curious.
Have a good day
