    Loggers in California with the felled giant Mark Twain redwood, 1892

    How many of you have a crosscut saw like that in your shop??

    I wonder how long did it take them to cut it. When I see those giants being cut I can't avoid having some guilt feeling, thinking about how something that took hundreds of years to grow takes so short to be felled down.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I also dream of a shop with north light where my hands can be busy, my soul rest and my mind wander...

    As long as it's turned into something more meaningful than newsprint or firewood, I'm OK with it.

    Looks like 2 crosscut saws welded together.
