    I think what is more impressive is how they manage to turn those monsters into usable lumber. Can't exactly tie that up to a mule, drag it out of the woods, and throw it on the mill.

    Looks to me like they somehow fastened two two-man saws together, end-to-end. Likely thinned the corresponding faces of the two saws to half thickness, and silver soldered a strap between them, but pulling this saw thru the cut must have taken a few men working together.
