I figured there’s at least a hand full of people that frequent this site that could be helped out by this article. Who hasn’t had a chainsaw at some point that was giving them a fit? If you have an older chainsaw, you’ve probably heard it say this before: “Help, Help! cough, umpfh, vrooooommmmm! cough, sputter, death.” I’ll walk you through the steps of bringing a Stihl 026 chainsaw back to life. Maybe I shouldn’t lead off with this, but m...
This silly story started Sunday evening when I was all jazzed up after watching my Broncos clinch their ticket to the Super Bowl! I decided I wanted to make a video for my YouTube channel that was Bronco related as a way of showing a little team spirit. So Monday morning I found a beetle kill pine log in our shop and decided I’d take a shot at chainsaw carving – something I’ve never done before but have wanted to try for a long time now. Using my 445 Husqvarna with a standar...

Hello all,Lately I have been thinking about making a cedar log cabin sauna for my cabin in the woods. I was thinking I could some how rig it up with a small wood stove. Anyone have any comments or suggestions to me about this? I am planning on squaring the logs so for it. My cabin is a scribe fit log cabin but I would rather not do that much work just for this sauna. Thanks!
Well I just had a large maple tree taken don at my house and have decided to keep a few choice pieces to mill up and use in some future projects. Tree had to come down and just couldn’t bear to see it all go to the chipper and burn pile. I plan on milling it up with a granberg Alaskan chainsaw mill. I also grabbed up a few rip chains and fitted them onto my Husky 460. Here are a few pics. to start with. Will be posting up more pics. as I go. I was finally able to start millin...
Finland is famous for woods and my mother in law has a small one 13.5 hectare and her brother has about 20 hectares. I was helping take some trees for fire wood and I noticed some brown dots in the birch. I know this does not make it the much fabled curly birch I would like to get for knife handles. But for free and saving it from the fire.Well it makes me feel happy and in 8 months time it could quite well be used for some handles.It is now split and off the floor and in the barn t...
Hi everyone! My name is Will and I live in the upstate of SC and among other thinks I’m an amateur woodworker and aspiring lumber-miller. This is my first post on Lumberjocks but I’ve been following some folks’ projects and the forums for a year or so. About a month ago I took down four VERY large Bradford Pear Trees for my grandfather. It was quite a big job because, like many other ornamental species, Bradford Pear’s have very full crowns and therefore many, man...
I live and work in Papua New Guinea with some of the world’s most remote people groups. Very soon, my family and I will be moving in with a tribal group called, Hewa. I first have to build our house, though. In order to do that I have to slab all of our lumber and just thought you guys would like to see some pictures of this process. These pictures are from a two week trip that I just returned from. It was really tough as we had quite a few set backs (our trees falling down the side of ...
