I come across some pretty amazing woodworking/woodprocessing tools online during my nightly research escapades – things I think the majority of the LJs crowd hasn’t seen (like me) – so I thought I’d make a little series to highlight some of the cooler, or rarer things I unearth. First up, one of the most convenient tools I’ve seen for processing entire trunks into firewood in a timely fashion.
I have a bittersweet feeling when I see tools this efficient at handling trees. They grow so slowly, it almost seems disrespectful to handle them so rapidly, and emotionlessly. Still, I have to be impressed by the tech itself. It’s a sweet machine.
