The other day, I was speaking to one of my colleagues at Fine Homebuilding. He told me about a video he had seen on Charles Neil's blog that shows two guys taking down some trees out in Texas. There is some chainsaw action, but that's not what make the video worth wathching. It's the fact that these guys also use some type of explosive to do the heavy work. Best of all, the set off the explosive with shot from a rifle (impressive shooting). Part of me thinks these guys are crazy in a dangerous way, but the rest of me knows I would love to see this in person.

Charles recently wrote an finishing article for Fine Woodworking.
