    Felling technique

    Hi guys I sometimes watch like Building Alaska , swamp loggers etc and watching how most tree workers fell trees , I have noticed that they do the felling cut quite different than we do a lot of their felling cuts seem to come in at a slight downward angle ,and we tend to come straight in flat , we’ll most of the time , so I was just wondering why it seems so different. Cheers Mark

    Teak oil

    Hi Steve , I find with Danish Oil after a few coats it kinda builds up a surface layer that can rub/chip off where as Teak Oil seems to penetrate and not leave a surface layer ,one time Rustins Danish Oil took like 2 weeks to dry so not good experience with Danish Oil
