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.
