Here we have a hand suger with wooden handle, used to bore holes such as seen previously. This suger, of the type used in construction work in the early 1800s and before, hangs in the attic of an old shed, built in the early 1800s. Notice just above the suger that the joists are joined with a wooden pin. No nails were used then. There seems to be a number of barns still standing in Greene County with this type of construction. Is yours built this way?
