Nice Froe Dude

04 Jan

Got an old-tech new froe for christmas so I thought I would grab some wood and try it out. I used some wet wood I had but they suggest green wood. With the froe you can better control the split by using torque on the froe for the desired split correction and with this technique you can make shingles. Tentative plan is to do the coop with it..but I need to cut down some trees for green wood..no cedar on our property…I wonder how maple shingles would work?
