    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.

    The sight and sound of that thing hitting the ground had to have been amazing.

    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.
