I cringed a few times at the bare feet that were way too close to the saw. Very impressive and makes me wonder why I can’t get a straight cut with a $1500 table saw sometimes!

I wonder about a couple of things. According to the comments, the house came out great, but he’s cutting green wood, I wonder how much it warped later. I also wonder what type of tree that is. Almost looks like cottonwood (but I know it’s not).

That looks like a lot of fun and very dangerous at the same time! Might have to try it with my saw after implementing a lot more PPE into the equation.

Well I tried it (sort of), my 54cc saw has a ripping chain which helps a lot in keeping the cut straight as well as clearing the stringy chips from cutting this way. I didn’t rip the logs into several boards, but did flatten one side so I could mill boards from the log on my bandsaw. The process of making several passes and going progressively deeper, I thought was actually a little safer than cutting all the way through in a single pass. It was much easier to keep the cut going in the direction I wanted to as minor adjustments are easier to make in shallow passes vs. a single through cut.

Saw looks sharp, but the poor guy will be deaf before he’s 30.
