Hello everyone tonight

Thanks for coming on board and introducing the adding question or should I say dilemma

Well I personally never used the adze during the hewing proces, even on small rafters which have a tendency to bounce around and need special support, the adze of course would have been used to shape the cog on the lower end and the half lap on the top, shaping the one lone flat side or the complete tapered squaring on some special rafters was a broadaxe only job and would have been much faster for sure

When you stop to think about it using a scoring axe was by far better and easier to accompany the broadaxe ing process simply because of the necessary change of position to a commodities that tool its shape and handle configuration

AdzIng for sure was used to dress and smooth the hewn surfaces in some instances

Well got to go
