    Interesting first cut system

    Yeah I like those rails some adjustable spikes in the middle would be good , one thing I noticed was he had both hands on the mill so what was holding the throttle on .

    Hi I always do the stem first working upside down , then turn it upright and shape the top bit start quite big as it will give you more wood to work with getting it to a shape you are happy with , take small cuts off so you don’t make a catastrophic mistake, good luck Cheers Mark

    Hi , I have total freedom to do whatever sat down , standing up , with cubs all up to me and the butt will get delivered to my yard , I was thinking if I do a laying down or on all 4 legs it would be a lot easier to move , standing on hind legs a crane or slew to move it but all fours just a tractor . Thanks Mark
