    Gotta watch this!

    I liked the behind the scenes shots too. Wedges and a maul will do wonders on straight grained wood.

    Very cool, I love this guy's videos, very entertaining.

    I have to wonder about the sled, walnut (looked like walnut?) to me would not be a good choice, I very much doubt there is much walnut around in the North. I would think that Birch would be the wood of choice? That steamer was WAY overkill, funny as all get out, and it worked, but man talk about a tool that you are not going to keep

    Also I'll be really impressed when he mines his own ore and makes his own steel then forges his own tools.....
