 As we know I have built my fair share for this company and it is one of the best log products  out there for   quality , price and ease to both the homeowner and the builder. Hochsetler puts on a LOG CABIN DAYS every year ,yet I never attended. However ,when I learned that the next home I would be building was a Hochseter for the Wallace couple  in North Dakota, I discovered  from the sales rep Mike O'Neal, that he had arranged to have the very logs that I would be using to build their home , milled for their demonstration !I  dedicated myself to attending the exciting event. I thought how exciting it would be to see the logs from the beginning steps on veido threw the entire process. I was right. Although the videos are noisy it is a first hand look at something that is usually not seen.

This video shows how the AMISH of Hochsetler in Ohio put the RUSTIC LOOK on the logs . It is a fairly simple technique involving plenty of elbow grease and a sharp tool which is very much like a hammer with a sharp claw.
