    Had some help today doing some tarp shelter building with the Hudson Bay. Works great as a draw knife to take off bark pretty quickly and it cleans up the knots to smooth things out nicely for a good log to work with. Hoping to get it lashed on and tarped over tomorrow as I ran out light once the helper decided it was time for a break.

    Finished, for now at least. Must bigger spot of rain coverage in the "playhouse".

    Toggle tie-down for the entry side.

    There's still a gap in the ceiling because of how I laid the 2-tarps out but on dry days it's nice to be able to see out some when we're mostly after wind protection while "hiding" from Mom.

    The hours we spent dragging wood around all summer, cutting, sawing, and tying has been a blast. He certainly makes it a longer process and drags you away to play something else but it was all good times while still getting to practice some shelter construction techniques. And, it's quite a unique thing to see in the backyard of a suburban home, so I'm pretty happy about that.

    Where did you get that rack for cutting logs? I like that design.

    Pretty sure it was from Amazon but may have been an ebay purchase. I was looking itbver and there's not as mich rusf on it as there should be since it has been outside, in that spot, for over year, maybe 2.

    I think this might be the one.

    Quite simple. Dozen bolts and screws or so. The tricky part is the metal is a bit sharp as it's roughly finished from sheet metal. It's surprisingly sturdy while not weighing a ton. It works a lot better than the wood one I had used prior that I made. The metal teeth help a lot when going to town with the big crosscut.

    It was a hard decision, but I ended up going with black micarta. Looks great in pictures after the blade gets some use.
