John Gives Drake a Chain Saw Lesson

John Gives Drake a Chain Saw Lesson

Yesterday, John and I went through a lesson on chain saw use and safety. Pretty much he freaked me out a lot about chain saws being a number one human destruction machine and not to use it by myself. We took it apart, put it back together, sawed some big old branches we had previously felled using a long reach hand saw, and then felled a big tree in a perfect line along the West fence, sawed that one up and went to eat lunch with Debbie and never returned. Chain saw tires you out, the constant vibrations and the general weight of it give you a full body work out. Several of the cuts we made are for the logs we are using for growing our own shiitake from plugs we ordered from Uprising Seeds in Washington. Check out their website, they seem pretty cool: http://www.uprisingorganics.com/
