Clamp slabs together to saw poles

Last time we saw slabs and put them aside. This time the slabs get clamped together so that we can use the chainsaw mill to saw the marker poles we are after. As always the first step is to put on the guide rails for the first cut.

The first cut is done with the help of those rails.

And as you can see there are a few cants coming out of that log. The clamps get lowered to make room for the chainsaw to pass.

And we can take our poles off the stack.

Here Hairo, one of Luis’s brothers, takes away one of those poles. There is so much sawdust flying around that he decided to wrap his face with another T-Shirt. Looks a bit funny but sawdust doesn’t taste that good ;-)
