Figure 189. Poster: Hewing with a broadaxAfter a log was scored, a man used a broadax to hew away pieces of wood until that side of the log was flat. When all four sides were done, the man had turned a round log into an 8” x 8” hewn timber. (Drawing by Chris McJunkin for the hewn-timber cabins collection, 2002. Poster by Amelia Vernon, donated 2002.)
