Book Shelf: A Reverence For Wood by Eric Sloane
The special knowledge of which wood is suited to which task, the ready identification of native trees, the reverence for wood,
the instinctive knowledge that wood can warm the soul as well as the body — these virtues of a bygone age are revived in
Eric Sloane’s remarkable work. Heavily illustrated, with a section on identification of nearly sixty native trees
PS. Not related to Larry David’s respect for wood.

Maybe Paul could somehow get a permies entry posted here, obviously something domicile-related...........

Traditional axe making and wooden lodge construction from Sweden
http://youtu.be/dbCpDsxUHVc
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbCpDsxUHVc

Really excellent video. Notice that he is building a cabin with green logs.
If you are building a house with rough sawn lumber from the sawmill always nail it up green and do not dry it beforehand;
let it dry in place. If you dry before building it will warp, cup, curl, become very hard, if hardwood lumber, and difficult to nail;
antidote to that is to dip the nails in oil or coat with parrafin wax; in extreme cases also blunt the tip of the nail before driving;
use cut nails and/or pole barn case-hardened ring shank nails.

Eric Callahan wrote:Yes, a good axe is probably the most important tool for sustaining life, in context with itself and a person who knows how to use it.

I prefer Maine or Northeastern manufactured axes (Snow & Nealley, Emerson Stevens, Rixford, Walters, etc). the ones below fit that criteria, hung on sugar maple handles.



Also Kelly axes, particularly the Kelly Perfect, a felling axe. I have one. It is recommended for hand hewing logs for building a log cabin alongside a broadaxe and a foot adze.

I'll post pix of my axe collection in another post here soon.

Norway's NRK broadcasts 12-hour wood burning programme
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-21482313

It may be a slow burner but will it fire up the audience? Norwegian public TV is broadcasting a programme showing a crackling fireplace - for 12 hours.
The NRK woodathon features firewood specialists providing commentary and advice on subjects such as chopping, stacking and burning the wood.
The transmission, entitled Hel Ved, also features music and poetry.
The head of programming at NRK, Rune Moeklebust, described it as "slow but noble television".

"We'll talk about the very nerdy subjects like burning, slicing and stacking the wood, but we'll also have cultural segments with music and poems," he said.

"People in Norway have a spiritual relationship with fire," Mr Moeklebust was quoted as telling Reuters.
"Fire is the reason we're here, if there was no firewood, we couldn't live in Norway, we'd freeze."

Sir Galahad goes over the Sir Lancelot's house and says "Well, I'm off to the Crusades. And as you are my most faithful friend, I will entrust you with the Key."
Lancelot asks "What's the key to?" and is told "This is the key to my wife's chastity belt. I could entrust it to no other knight than you."
So Galahad gets on his horse and gallops off in the general direction of Jerusalem. But after an hour he pauses to check his directions, and sees a cloud of dust behind him.
It turns out to be Sir Lancelot galloping up. "Hey Galahad! he cries. "Wrong key!"

Link and related document that I mentioned in one of the previous post is not that bad.



Well, so far, it seems that much the best advice on Natural Farming is to be found here in this excellent new Fukuoka forum at Permies. I hope it will remain that way.

Here again are the links to the Bonfils documents, typewritten with many beautiful illustrations and diagrams, that I received from Jamie Nichol to archive in my website at ibiblio, EcoLandTech. They are all in French. Maybe someone would volunteer to translate several of the wheat growing-related documents. Here, for what it is worth, is the link:

Marc Bonfils' Agricultural Research
Index of /ecolandtech/souscayrous/MarcBonfils-AgriculturalResearch
http://www.ibiblio.org/ecolandtech/souscayrous/MarcBonfils-AgriculturalResearch/

I wonder who has the wheat articles? Could they be obtained for use by everyone?
