Pit Sawing

If you don't have a chainsaw or access to a local sawmill, a pit saw is a pretty good way to turn logs into boards.  Two guys, a saw, a pit, and a log.  There is a tight choreography here. Always pull - never push - the saw. The sawyer on the bottom has to work a little less because he has gravity on his side.  But all the sawdust falls right into his face. [NOTE: This pit saw was located outside of Tanai (see Tanai and Tologyi Tour of Tanai) in Kachin State, Myanmar.
