I turn free wood. Let's see, what did it cost me to do that. Chainsaw $350 Extra chain, $20 Sharpening guide and files $24. Gloves, $12 Ear protectors, face shield. Bandsaw, $750 , Extra Blades $8 each. 5 gallons Achorseal $60. Pickup Truck to get the wood, $21,000 (granted that was 230,000 miles ago)
Muscle rub and tylenol, about $12
I do enjoy being able to choose how I want to cut it and tolerate the chiggers and ticks. Then of course you have the macho image of a man with a chainsaw to live up to so you gotta buy the right pants and shirt to go with it.
