So, this week's Friday Five is:
Five log cabin words.
Puncheon: A split log or heavy slap with the face smoothed. Used in making floors and tabletops.
Cant: A log with one or more squared sides. Also the curved bark and outer edge that is cut off. Sawmills often sell cants for firewood. They square up the log so they can cut flat boards on the saw.
Chinking: The space between the logs, also the plaster/mud used to fill the spaces.
Adze: A cutting tool with a thin, arched blade that is set at a right angle to the handle. Used for shaping logs.
Peavy: A lumberman's tool. A long pole with a pivoting hooked arm and spike at the end. Also called a Cant Dog. Similar to a cant hook, but a peavy is spiked at the end, where a cant hook is blunt.
Question for you: Thanksgiving is coming up in a couple of weeks. Are you traveling for Thanksgiving? How are you doing on your NaNo goals? Was week two a success for you?
