This was a fun project
. The thinning was slow going until I read the BB
page and saw that I could use a hatchet to remove wood. You can see it in the last pic of the gif - it sped things up!
I used a bow saw, a woodworking saw, an axe, a splitting wedge as a hammer, and a drawknife.
Maybe I can try selling this on Facebook
marketplace for ~$200.
