I saw/read somewhere that a guy stuck a bubble level on he saw for his free hand work. Seemed like a good idea.I just went ahead and started with my regular chain… it worked… I learned some things in trying and am sure the next round will be a little prettier. Maybe I’ll know what I’m doing by the time I’m done? Hahaha.
I’ll be doing this all free hand... for a first attempt, I think it turned out alright. Yeah, it could be better… these are maybe 2.5” thick. After drying, I’ll run them through a band saw to get to planks each.
I haul the logs out of the woods with a grapple and very little dirt sticks to the bark of beech. What little there is brushes right off… no need to de-bark.
