  • Here I am, working a huge figured maple log. It has some surprises hidden it it along the way, both good and bad. I demonstrate perseverance while cutting this log, and the results were worth it!
    This was some of the most highly figured lumber I have ever cut. Along the way I encountered nails and metal scrap that was embedded in the log. Watch the whole video to find these hidden surprises.

    Thanks for the video and the message. I needed to hear this today. I'm not afraid of working hard but I tend to get discouraged when my project doesn't turn out perfect. Thanks for the reminder to just keep trying and to not give up.

    I am a woman from Canada who just bought her first handsaw, definitely a beginner. Your video was amazing, and so is your message. I could see it was a lot of work, but it's very relaxing to watch you slice that log like butter. Thanks for posting.

    You dance well with life. I can tell that you're listening to good music. I try to do the same thing with the wood that people like you give to us. Of course, one has to try and listen to the tree as well. Obviously, you do. Helping others hear the music as you're doing with the young ones is both, to your credit, as well as something we should all be doing.

    Why not use a metal detector on each log before cutting.
