For this BB, you will be making a timber tool! It can use a hi-lift jack mechanism, a crank or something else. Just make sure it's beefy and functional.
Here is what one might look like:
- Very durable
- Very strong
- 2 foot minimum travel
To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
- The supplies you're starting with
- Partway through the build
- The finished timber tool
- Proof that it works
I've been working in the woods all my life and my family owned and operated a firewood and pulp logging business, and I've never heard of a timber tool. It seems Google has never heard of it either. What does it do?
My mistake, if you do a Google search with "timbertool" as one word, it comes up with one. It seems it is the actual name brand of a tool.
They have them at Wheaton Labs and like them, especially for folks new to cutting trees. It allows you to leave a thicker hinge and push it over, and/or it takes the place of wedges. Downside is that they're heavy to haul around.
