Cutting wood is great for both body and soul. It is an exciting, varied and relaxing activity which appeals to many.
This book is a complete presentation of the art of cutting wood, with chainsaw use as the main theme. There are beautifully illustrated directions for correct and safe use of a chainsaw, with useful information about the various techniques and about sharpening the chain with a file and all the other maintenance.
The chainsaw is used to fell and trim trees and cut the stems into logs. Then it is time to split the logs – either by muscle or machine power – before the wood can be stacked and dried.
'The illustrations in this book are good and plentiful, and the text informative and concise. Good inspiration for enthusiastic wood-cutters.'
