chainsaw cutting the inside of this tree

chainsaw tree shavingsI don't get to back in the studio nearly as much as I'd like.  But I just had to jump inside this tree to test a new chainsaw toy.  Actually, it's a little chainsaw attachment for my Makita skillsaw.  Although it did a nice job with a controlled chainsaw cut here, it clogged up every few minutes with long sawdust shavings.

Oh, just in case you were wondering why the hollow log.  Too often when we receive urban trees, they have metal inside that our sawmill and other tools don't really seem to appreciate.  This seems to be a decent solution for a log that might have been hard to work otherwise.
