Bolt found and chain works better than rope sling, but I am about worn out. Wired work porch lights to switch with plug on it for now.

Walking it in won’t be a problem but getting it to stand up once inside might be. Will cross that bear when I get to it. πŸ˜‰

And moved it about 20 feet before the rope broke. Got some chain but need to find a bolt to attach it, so came in to take a break.

Got the bark off and most of the trunk cleaned up at least enough for now. Took 2 T posts and a piece of rope and made a walking sling…

Heading out to try to finish cleaning up the oak post. Hoping the hands and arms hold out.

Still got some cleanup to do, then will cut slots on 2 sides for the joists so they are resting on rather than just attached to the post.

Can hardly move now. But am about 3/4’s done with getting it ready to use as a support post for the loft project.

Spent a couple of hours today with adze http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adze and drawknife, debarking a 10 ft long oak log and over did it…
