Find the Beetle: Canandaigua Lake, NY Posted on October 11, 2016 by Megan It can be tough to keep up with the beetle but recently we caught one of these time-tested mallets on-site during our raising in Canandaigua, NY. Taking a break on the deck. It takes some muscle to use this tool as Dave demonstrates. A pretty lake view was enjoyed by the beetle, our co-workers, and timber frame fans during the raising. This project used Douglas fir with a custom textured/stained finish. Share/Email this post!
