Anyone try making these up here? I've read some "how to" articles on how to make your own. I know they are traditionally made from cedar, but I'm curious about white spruce. Lot's of big spruce trees went down around my cabin and I'm thinking of more uses for them other than just firewood. Wondering if anyone has tried splitting shakes out of bolts of spruce and what tips you might have.
Also, anywhere in Anchorage to buy a froe? I know where I can order one online, but we're headed out to the cabin for Thanksgiving and I thought it might be fun to give it a try then.
