Modern homesteading shows us how to make our cedar shakes by hand, the old fashioned way of getting it done.
They also have a video to show exactly how to make the shakes, and tell us ” Bottom line? You can split your own shakes – it’s easy, and actually pretty fast. Why pay someone else for hand split shakes when it’s so easy to do it yourself?”
