I just had to show this off. The family and I went to the Orange County, VA fair today. This is an old fashioned agricultural fair that is held on the grounds of Montpelier, President James and former First Lady Dolly Madison’s home near Orange, VA. The kids had a blast looking at the animals, going to the petting zoo, and doing other things that they had to do.
While we were there, my oldest spotted a Virginia State Forestry Service booth with a log and several two-man cross-cut saws laying up against it. He wanted to try to saw the log. In order to keep from discouraging him we went over and gave it a try. My wife took a little video of us sawing on that log. Here is is for your viewing pleasure.
Shortly after this an older man from the AARP booth came over to give him a hand. He was getting tired and not pulling good. So, he got to finish it off.
We brought the disk home as a souvenir. I am going to make one radial slit in it and try to dry it so that it does not split badly. Anyone got any ideas on how I can do that? I was told today by someone that there was something I could soak it in that would do the trick. He, unfortunately could not remember the name of the stuff. I would really appreciate any ideas here.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed. I think I have a real future woodworker here.
