Woodcraft Week at McBane Mill




McBane Mill, initially a grist mill and woodworking mill, later, the home and studio for  Ruffin Hobbs, a creative scupltor , and now the site for Woodcraft Week
Big Cane Creek flows behind the mill house.  The canal in the foreground used to power a horizontally oriented water wheel which in turn powered the machinery inside. This creek flows into the Haw River.  There were over a hundred mills  within the Haw River watershed.




What do you do to a tree after you chop it down?


Chop it up.
