Today I bring you an example of freehand chainsaw work par excellence.
First, a log is selected, and initial cuts are made.
That is one BIG chainsaw.
Cutting with the grain of the wood produces shavings that look like shredded cheese.
Gratuitous photo op with the evening sun:
Next, the log is hoisted into the air with the track-hoe, also known affectionately around here as “Barney, the large purple dinosaur”.
The cutting continues. Notice the lack of chalk lines or any other markings. Pete did this ALL freehand. With a chainsaw! Boggling.
The first of the treads, which was delivered about ten minutes later.
I’ll get a picture and post it when it is installed.
