Still doing rafters
While you can see the end of the line (on the left of the photo), we are still working away at rafers on the high/southern side. We've decided the simplest and most accurate way to cut the half circle notches out of the rafter - so they sit on the beam and hold on well-- is to use a saw and chisel. Typical notching; you make a series of vertical cuts, then use the chisel to cut out the waste between the cuts and clean up the notch.
First you do one end:
Then back down to the other end.
It still takes quite a while as each notch is unique and we have to get the rafters to be exactly level to each other.
