Figure in Cedar Wood

20130722-004058.jpg

I bought this beautiful cedar log from a man who sells firewood. It was four feet long, but I decided to cut it in half. With the help of a large log saw, plenty of sweat, and lots of breaks, the log was cut in about two-and-a-half hours. The Japanese saws cut on the pull stroke rather than the push stroke like Western saws. I love the Japanese saws!
