This was a link from another forum. Beautiful wood but wow at the working conditions. I get nervous making a cut on my table saw let alone without a splitter and with that much blade exposed.

And they have gloves on while running the saw. This is definately an accident waiting to happen.

what in the world are you guys talking about, looks pretty safe to me. Safety gloves, safety goggles, wood catcher, etc… I like that table saw so much I might look into getting me one someday. My wife and I could mill our own logs like those two guys are!

It is scary to us but I bet the guy who put the pictures up provides many jobs for his community. Did anyone look at the link to the rest of the pictures. I cant believe how much rosewood this guy has. He built a house out of it!!

Just incredible stuff. Wouldn’t it be nice to have access to that wood! I didn’t intend to start a bashing thread and I hope the owner does not take it that way. Just made me nervous seeing that picture.

Beautiful wood, but I wish Indonesia and Inda were more strict with logging regulation. I’d like my great-grandchildren to have the opportunity to be able to handle a rosewood guitar.
