Do they have tricks for getting such a tight fit?
I suppose the "if done correctly" would involve the proper management of moisture and water.
Of course wood can touch masonry if the masonry if is not exposed to much water or moisture. I have to wonder about the longevity of some of those applications though..

I live in the mountains of TN and it is very moist here, so I am worried about moisture from concrete or stone seeping up into the logs via concrete piers and I plan on doing a few for porch posts outside. Any suggestions on anchoring?
