家作り備忘録130A selfbuilder's note

まだ腰は完治していない模様。家内は高校時代の友達と旅行に行くと言うし、犬のお守りがてらのんびりと作業をしてきた。

基地に着いたら、とりあえず雪あそび。よ〜降りましたな。磨墨はいきなり全開モード。

引き続き、腰の様子を見ながら、ともかく墨付け。手順が解っているので、切り出しまでは簡単。でも加工後の部材をロフトまで持ち上げるのが一苦労。さらに壁から身を乗り出して、仮止めするのが、なかなか難儀なもの。こんな時に限って、切り込み部分の仕舞寸法間違えて、もうちょいで嵌るはずが、嵌らずやり直し。忍耐を試されているみたいだ。無理も出来んし。

良いこともあるもんで、猟師をしている友達から猪肉を頂き、その夜はすき焼きと相成りました。彼は鹿肉を中心に精肉加工も行い、僕らの食用はもちろん、磨墨と小吉もお世話になっている。彼から買う理由は、ロースや腿肉などの人気部位以外も余すとこ無く加工して、ソーセージやミンチとして加工して販売しているからだ。大半の猟師は割に合わないと廃棄してしまう部位も丁寧に使い切る。これは命を頂いた者が当然すべき事だが、彼のようにそれを真面目に実践している人は、残念ながら皆無に近い。鹿は増え過ぎて、食害をもたらした。行政の補助を当てにして、歯と尻尾だけ取って放置する猟師達が多い中、ほぼ一人で、この実態の改善に取り組んでいる彼を、微力ながら応援したい。

これから、窓の設置や内装で、一番使うのがカンナ。見える部分の木材に仕上げでカンナを掛けることが増えて来る。自動カンナ盤は板全体の平面を出すには向いているが、部分部分の平滑面を出すには、カンナによる手作業が中心になる。良く使う寸八(一寸八分:72mm)と寸六(一寸六分:65mm)で青紙鋼の刃を探し、台木は白樫で見つけた。青紙鋼は硬く、ちゃんと研げればプロの仕上げが見込める。この鋼にトライしてみようかと思う。使いこなしには、それなりに時間と工夫が必要となるが、面倒くさい過程を経て得るものは大きい。

とりあえず、今回はここまで。来週あたりから、本調子に身体を持って行って。遅れを取り戻したいもんだ。

My lower backache seems not well enough. I had to take care of my two dogs while my wife went overnight trip to eat blow fish with her old high school friends. So I drove up to my bat cave this weekend and half enjoyed snow with my pups as well as house building. No hard working.

Newly fallen snow piled up to knee deep. My Lab off course even my chihuahua running around fresh snow. The both enjoyed dry powder during Saturday morning and soon had a long nap beside warm wood stove. While they are sleeping peacefully, started line drawing on bearing wall panels to cut to match gable end slope.

Drawing and cutting panel's easy. However, carrying these pieces up to loft floor and installing them needed special attention. As my lower back explodes immediately once overloaded. So, with piece by piece, slowly climbinf up ladder step by step. Took me almost double of the time I usually do. Then poke out myself from gable end placing these pieces before nailing them down. A lot of cold sweat. Fortunately my back didn't blow up for the day.

Good thing was, my hunter friend brought me warthog meat that afternoon. The best way to cook warthog meat is Sukiyaki. This hunter a friend of mine is also a butcher. Hunters used to be butchers who supply wild animals meat. However, they just hunt down dears or warthogs to get incentives by authorities need pest control. They'll pay you certain amount per deer by each set of teeth and tail. So most of hunters abundan carcasses after 'tokens' taken. But my friend uses up entire meat of course, even horns or bones to make accessories. This is because he took life of others. It's the least courtesy to use up whole meat of the others once taken their lives. I buy ground meat for my dogs from him because of this idea.

After finishing outer wall, a plainer will be a key tool. As furnishing fixtures become major job for house building. A traditional hand planer needs a little preparation before use. Well conditioned plainer peeling rough surface out very smoothly. I've chosen one of the hardest forged steel blade on the market. The blades' steel material provided by iron maker Hitachi actually manufactured from sand steel which is same as traditional Japanese iron making. Mines are 'Blue labeled' steel. Yasuki steel labeled Blue, White, Silver. Blue is the hardest and most tenacious of all the line.Diffucult to hone but long lasting sharp edge.
