Northern white cedar logs can be debarked by using a machine that peels the bark off 2" to 8" diameter logs or by using a draw knife for larger diameters.
Machine peeling leaves a rough surface and if you run your hand over the surface you can get a sliver.
Machine peeled posts can subsequently be machine hewn, which produces a smoother surface, or hand hewn with a draw knife, which gives the post an old fashion look.
Debarked logs with diameters greater than 8" must be hand hewn with a draw knife. Hand hewn posts are sometimes called German Peeled or Draw Knifed posts.
Rails and spindles can be pre drilled with tenoned ends to fit any stairway and are used to build log furniture.
As always, we can custom make anything with our logs or yours.
We ship throughout the United States and Canada; we own our trucks. No matter how big or small your building job is, we are here to help. Ask questions, because educated builders and home owners, who talk the log talk, make our job easier.
Hops growing has a long tradition in Michigan since the 19th century and with the recent introduction of hardy Michigan hopps varieties and a love of craft beers, hops production is a booming business. These cedar log poles are ideal for hop trellising.
