Turning a dead oak tree into a mountain bike jump with a cheap mill

Muahaha! If you're one of those people who insist I buy the optimal tool for every job, you're really gonna hate this one. Today we use a $100 chainsaw and a $30 beam cutter attachment to mill oak into planks. And it works! Then we build a nice little kicker as a proof of concept. Enjoy!

  29. jeron92

    jeron92Пре месец

    Assuming that tree is arround 20 inches in diameter and is a white oak, ill subtract about an inch to compensate for the bark, the average ring density is .2 inches per ring, divide 19 by .2 and you get 95 years apx **Im guessing the diameter** Might not be accurate but that should be somewhat close comment down below if you think i did it wrong edit: years apx

    Look for a Lewis winch. Bolts onto a chainsaw and the power/pulling capacity is incredible, especially if you add pulleys to increase leverage further. Great videos though, spent a lot of time watching the channel during lockdown!
