A tree in a near by wood fell victim to the recent high winds. This morning I was up early with my dog and a bow saw in hand to capitalise on the bounty. Once the tree limbs were cut to manageable lengths, I set off with some of them on my shoulder back home. Three trips later the logs lay in my garden and a cup of tea was in order.
Once refreshed I set about the task of cutting the lengths down to wood burner size. Rather than firing up the chainsaw, I decided to cut by hand with the trusty bow saw. Not the biggest log pile in the world but it all tops up the wood store. There is still another two thirds of the tree left in the wood which will be extracted over the coming week or so.
Is it just me or do others get a satisfactory feeling from doing a task by hand rather than taking the easy option, in this case jumping in the 4x4 with my chainsaw?
