In woodworking, hand hewing is the process of converting a log from its rounded natural form into lumber or timber with more or less flat surfaces using mostly an axe. Hewing is an ancient method, and before the advent of the industrial-era type sawmills, hewing was a typical way of squaring up the wooden beams for use as timber framing and in wood cabins. Today hewing is still used for that purpose by anyone who has logs, needs wooden beams, and would prefer not to pay for finished lumber. Thus homesteaders who are on budgets may choose to hew their logs rather than buy it. Hewing is a good process to help prepare the log, hand hewing also looks quite appealing and different than milled machine logs. After a tree is selected and then felled, hewing can take place where the log has landed or be skidded or twitched which is skidded with a horse or oxen out of the woods to a work site. The log is then placed across two other smaller logs near the ground or up on trestles about waist height, and stabilized either by notching the support logs. A timber dog can also be used, with a long bar of iron with a tooth on either end of that that jams into the logs and helps to prevent movement. The person hewing the log measures and locates the timber within the log on both ends and then marks the lines along the length of a log, usually with a chalk line. Hewing is the last step in this whole process, which is also collectively referred to as hewing. Hewing is done on the sides of the logs sides with a broadaxe. Hewing occurs from the bottom of the log stem upwards towards what was the top of the standing tree, which reduces the tendency of the broken fibers to migrate inwards towards the eventual timber beam.
