    Mr. Chickadee. Yeah, I watched several of his videos before someone clued me in that I should turn on captions. Watching is satisfying either way, but with his captions on, I learn a little more.

    "Around" could normally mean like a belt around my waist (circumference).
    A diameter would be measured at the end of the log, edge to edge, like a slash changing "O" to "CD". I hope my example...

    Checks ("cracks" running with the grain) are generally not a problem, even long ones. A true crack going across the grain can be a structural failure waiting to happen. If you're seeing a check...

    My guess is that the gaps opened well after original construction. Whatever caused the change will likely cause a little more change, opening gaps around your fixes. If you can get to the bottom of...
