Making Some Tools

Today started out as cold rainy day. So I took care of some tool making that I have been putting off for a day just as this. Mostly I was just being lazy. :)
A few weeks ago I had cut out peaces for log cleats. I took them by the machine shop and had them welded. Log cleats are used to hold logs in place so they want roll. You can also turn the cleat around and roll a log in place.
I also made some butterflies. Butterflies are used to hold up one end of the log, like at door opening. Butterflies are also used to raise a log end by tightening the bolt.
