Would sort of like to know what Chainsaw Detailing Service they had come out to clean and detail that saw for the photo.
Buy new chainsaw. put it on the wood. return said chainsaw.

Okay, I didn't catch this one the first time I saw the ad.

If you don't get it, look at the bottom part of the picture more closely.

Isn't that a salesman's sample? Essentially a fully-operational scale model of the product they're trying to sell. They're pretty cool, and sometimes worth some coin.

I hope the drywall screws and anchors aren't the "accessories".

I prefer to think that the stove is sitting on a giant tackle box and all those screws are about four feet long.

I know that many of you here know what dry red oak looks like. So, I give you:

SmartSelect_20181128-202125_Chrome.jpg


I thought I'd write some better ad copy for them here.
  • FULLY SEASONED RED OAK
  • SEASONED FOR ONE ENTIRE TRUCK RIDE
  • MOISTENED WITH GARDEN HOSE TO AVOID UNSIGHTLY CHECKING
  • DON'T KNOW WHAT LENGTH YOUR STOVE TAKES? YOU'LL LOVE OUR RANDOM SIZE ASSORTMENT! FROM 40" TO 8". IF IT DOESN'T FIT, JUST KICK IT INTO THE WATER! MAYBE THAT GUY HAS A STOVE ON HIS SAILBOAT, AND A FEW DAYS SUBMERGED MIGHT FRANKLY DRY THIS WOOD OUT A LITTLE.
