Their survival too often depended on it. TOOLS AND SKILLS o the forests in which they settled, our ancestors brought little more than a few tools and a great deal of ingenuity. They had to find ways to convert wood into most of what they needed for survival, and the resulting reverence for and skill with wood was boundless and profound. Many of the tools used for working wood were themselves made out of wood—as were the handles for most of the others—and they are easily reproduced today. A mallet, for example, was simply a two-foot section out of the limb of a hardwood tree like oak or hickory.

In this variation, notches are cut into the underside of the log to accommodate the rock pillars that support it. These notches keep the sill from rolling or "kicking out" (Plate 46). 5. Sometimes the sill is left completely round. Locust poles with concave ends (as shown in an earlier diagram) support it from the bottom, and the ends of the sleepers are "round notched" to fit over the sill's rounded top surface. 6. Occasionally the ends of the sills are notched on top to hold the first two end logs.

The horizontal cut should be the same width as the sill. Each joint should be at least deep enough to allow the bottom edge of the log to hide the sleeper. Fit these two end logs into place in the six-inch spaces you have left between the first and last sleepers and the ends of the sills (Plates 60, 61). You are now ready to begin cutting the dovetail notches for the corners. We recommend this particular notch both for its intricacy and beauty, and for its peculiar design which pulls each wall log toward the inside of the house locking it in place and making it impossible for one of the wall logs to kick out or roll.
