Cutting Round Slabs for End Tables and Finally Ready for the WELL!

Cutting Round Slabs for End Tables and Finally Ready for the WELL!

The most challenging tree we've cut so far on the homestead took us almost a week to get through. We cut round slabs with the Stihl MS271 to be used for end tables, and process another 2 cords with the help of the LogOx 3 in 1 Forestry Tool. After 4 months of heavy, hard work we're finally ready to drill a well!
