Haynes Shed Manual: How to create roof tiles part 2 (video)

The second part of the video which we mentioned here on Thursday, part of the work going into our Haynes Shed Manual (out about this time next year). Here's what John says about it:
An 'all action' video. No talking but have added sub-titles. This is the first part of the process for creating the 'raw' shakes. The next step is similar as each sixteenth is split into two shakes, that have parallel edges and a small triangular piece of waste wood. So, in theory, I should get 32 shakes per log. However, with knots and spiral grain, I get anywhere between 10 and 30 in practice. Once I get the 'rough' shakes I then need to shape them. That is a subject for a follow-on video.
