    Headed to the wood lot 002.JPG Headed to the wood lot 003.JPG Headed to the wood lot 004.JPG Headed to the wood lot 005.JPG Headed to the wood lot 006.JPG Headed to the wood lot 007.JPG Headed to the wood lot 008.JPG A sad fact of life is,..... a fellow can't always be thinking about huntin' and fishin', ..... sometimes he has chores to do. Jeb's wife told him, if he had any hopes of deer hunting this fall, he'd better get to it and cut some firewood before heading to his camp. He knows the blackflies are going to be terrible this time of year, but a man's gotta do what a mans gotta do...
    9" tall, basswood , painted with acrylic washes and finished with a coat of Tried and True.
    Hope you like him

          You got your orange exactly right. I was thinking Stihl, just as soon as I saw the color!
          Lots of village people here still heating with round wood. They are out with the power saws
          just about all summer it seems.

          The paint on the clothing is so exact, I could name that guy, he prunes my spruce trees.

          My only criticism is the saw. The engine is too small and the bar is too short.
          Double the size of the engine and put a 24" bar on it.

          A group here will buy a 100' spool of saw chain and share it.
          Split and stacked, a cord is 4' x 4' x 8' long. You best lay in 5 cords
          to be assured of a comfortable Robson Valley winter.

            Thanks Brian, ..... appreciate your comments, but no need for a 24" bar here on the east coast. The ship building industry took care of of that years ago , no big trees left to speak of. I burn approximately 4 cord of hardwood each winter and it's always nice and warm down in my basement where I do my carving.

              The log in my avatar was full of pitch pockets and rot-spots. Pure junk that I was not even interested in trying to carve (Douglas-fir). A big Stihl with a 36" bar took that one down. 18" thick, those wheels were chopped with a hydraulic splitter.

              We still have a lot of big sticks. The battle over Old Growth harvest is heating up here.
              Chun T'oh Whudujut is a protected rare temperate zone rainforest about 100km west of my place.
              Lots of cedar running 3'-6' diameters or more. There's an unprotected area across the valley from my place that will cost a $million/mile to get at but the logging company is quite willing to do it. Everybody else has taken a dim view of it, jobs or no jobs.

                    Well Wayne, your little man doesn't look as happy going to work as he does when he's hunting or fishing. Great job. I love his shirt.
