bdmowers Posted December 16, 2019 Report Share Posted December 16, 2019 I need to hollow out a part of a log to make a beating chamber to macerate fibers for papermaking. Anyone who has done this or has similar experience have any suggestions, or want to help? The log piece, any tree species, should be a couple of feet in length and 10-12" in diameter. The fastest way to hollow out a log appears to be using the tip of a chainsaw but I don`t have one nor do I have the experience to do this. Drilling wide holes into it with a heavy duty drill then cleaning out between the holes has some promise. As does cutting it in half lengthwise, hollowing it out then gluing it back together but I don`t have the tools for either of these methods. Does anyone have the tools needed that wants to help? In return, I`ll show you how to make paper with any of a couple of dozen plants here lakeside including lirio, agave, grass, banana leaves, corn husks and leaves, etc. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
