Hi Richard,

Ah yes, you use essentially "The Other Way" then. I would never have thought that repositioning the log for every hewn surface would have been a standard practice but you have enlightened me on that score and I will do some reconsidering in terms of my own practices, i.e., the advantages and disadvantages by comparison. Thanks for laying out the process in more of its entirety though, so often it gets left at the point of reaching the end of the log with no consideration of the fact that there are mostly four sides to every timber, not to mention the two ends.
