Where Are the Power Tools
....climbing up out of the saw pit, the worker of wood looked around and was under-stand-ably fathomed by the appearance of what he saw from up here on top. ”Just like climbing out of a box”; he was heard to exhale as he shook the wide brimmed hat free from all the particles of saw chips that gravity had brought his way. Stomping off in the direction of the sap house and muttering to himself, I could not quite understand what the words were that he was making. Turning to the pit boss I asked if he had an explanation for what was being said….”not sure myself, but seems as if I caught a few words there, something about where were the power tools.”
I all-ways said ole Hank was half mad, who-ever heard of power tools….seems as if he’s been in the pit too long, I thought to myself as I got ready to go home for the day.

So here is my beginning….and since a picture is worth a ‘thousand words’, why say any-more….
....more on width….
....a study in height….
....the starting of length….
....and where it ends….
....and finally some white oak wood….
Now I can start making wood chips….
