    This guy is braver than I:

    The list of things that make be grimace watching this video is not a short one (bare feet, using a saw so close to the ground, lack of any sort of protective gear, etc, etc...) but that being said he has some pretty impressive skills with that monster saw.

    That ain't his first rodeo. A human saw mill.

    That was awesome, super dangerous way to work but awesome! Can't say he's not skilled.

    That man is an artist! Believe it or not, it is not as dangerous as it appears. Super difficult though to cut it as straight and neat as he did. My hat is off to him.

    WOW. Awesome!.


    Anyone notice how loose that chain is? Look at about 4:10.

    Great hands, eyes and balance. Some wet wood to be building with.

    Damn, I'm humbled.
    Yep, he is an artist alright. His brush happens to weigh something like 50 lbs and is more than capable of tearing him apart if he makes a mistake in handling it!
    I'm not really a saw nut, but isn't that an 090? And he hardly ever even touches the front handle! Amazing.

    I'd say 80% is in the condition of his chain..........he knows how to keep one

    Yeah I wonder how much use he can get out of one monster chain like that.... I'd guess he probably swaps links out as necessary instead of replacing the whole kit and kaboodle. All the same I'd be super nervous running a high value chain like that so close to the ground. But like Jags said - it's not his first rodeo.

    Gotta have feet thicker than the leather on my danners.
