Improvement of firewood making with handsaw – sawing with two saws at the same time

Sawing firewood with a handsaw is quite a timeconsuming process. Before I used only one handsaw to crosscut firewood. Because that’s how I saw others are doing it.

Today I came to an idea, that I could use both hands to crosscut firewood. So I took two saws.

It seems to work for now. Of course every single saw is slower compare to sawing with only one saw when person concentrates all strength on it. But here is extra benifit, because applying too much strength on a tool usually damages it, requiring more and more strength to use it in future or extra time for difficult maintenance. Having two saws at the same time extends life of every single saw and the life of a sawyer as well, since both sides of the body are excercised instead of only one.

Another biodinamic trick concerning metal tools and machines, I heard recently, is that leaving a tool outside to a fool moon light improves it for some “magical” reason. Knives get sharp and even engines work better. If it works for my tools, I shall write about it.
