Wow, the line he’s able to cut with that saw is incredible. And the shine on the broadax… A finely tuned, indeed.

That guy is all muscle. Forget that belly, that’s just ballast.

I wonder how he does at the competitions.

I can tell you that is one seriously sharp crosscut saw, and dosed well with kerosene too!

Now, if you want to see some really sincere and dedicated effort put into carpentry, check this totally awesome guy out:

I sure wish he would come and practice on my log pile, about every 21” would be greatly appreciated. LOL

He’s good…gotta definitely give credit where it is due…I would crap out after about 1 minute swinging a ax like that. They would also have to rename me “Greg Two Toes” if I stood on a log and swung an ax.

I find it humorous that this thread currently has 206 views and the YouTube video in question only has 177. Although I would not mention it to the man with the saw as I don’t want to make him angry.

Pretty amazing work John. You really good coordination and balance to swing a axe standing on a thin springboard like that and the sawing is awesome too. This guy looks like a real powerhouse. I wonder if he does this professionally or just likes to compete.

I am thinking he started with a lot of anger issues. :-)

I also noticed that he was bare handed. Bet you could shave with that axe

When I looked at it again, I did notice some bad form. He doesn’t guide his saw with his thumb when he starts a cut. :)
