Introduction: How to Use a Drawknife to Debark a Pine Log

Hello how are you?
Here I do the best that I know on how to use a drawknife and also on how to sharpen. This is the first step that I need to do to prepare the pine logs for my pole barn that I am building. I hope you can see that this is very easy. Not to say that it is not work because it is. Just not as hard as I was lead to believe from some old timers. Yes I know that I could just go to the big box lumber store, but my pines need to be thinned out. I see where I have thinned back eight years ago that the trees have more then doubled in girth. So by thinning the pines and using them for something is all good to me. I hope you enjoy this little video.
