Dull And Done

“If I had six hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
Abraham Lincoln

I was rushing to get some more wood cut before the sun went down when I jammed my chain into the dirt.  You know the drill…shower of sparks and now the chain is duller than dishwater.  It couldn’t cut butter now.  Ah well, I was going to call it a day in a few minutes anyway.

    Reminds me of cutting palm trees in florida. Palm trees actually pick up sand and incorporate it into their wood, so you get about an inch each time between sharpening the blade.

    Sort the same with Juniper. Some of the woodcutters around here call it “sand cedar” because it’s the dirtiest wood there is. Cutting it is like dipping your saw into a pile of dirt, and multiple chains are a necessity.
