I am cleaning and restoring the logs on an old Adirondack camp. The existing chinking is rope. I am not sure, but I beleive it to be either a Hemp rope or a horsehair rope. The owner would like to install new rope chinking on the walls that are weathered , keeping the walls that are protected ”as is” (rope is in good shape on those walls} Any ideas on what may have been used originally? (1920’s) and what I might be able to use today that would closely resemble rope chinking?
