Axe Women are here
« on: October 31, 2014, 04:24:54 pm »
We had such a great time at this year's pig roast.  And the forum just feels like home.  I have added the Forestry Forum logo to my show trailer so everyone will know I am a member. 


 

I hope to get the word out about the Forestry Forum as I travel around the country.  I hope FF members will come out and meet us.  I will post my show schedules in this section.

If you have questions or want to share pictures with us this will be a great place to do that.

Hi Alissa and welcome from across the Bay of Fundy, I have yet to make my way to the Pig Roast but by all accounts the Axe Women were a huge success.

Welcome Alissa!  While checking out the website, I see you had a place to order a calendar up, so I got myself one. :)

I recognize Laurette who was here for the pigroast and Michelle who I got to meet at Boonville :)

So there will be no more marriage proposals.  :) Alissa is happily married to a wood worker extraordinaire. The gals are here to share their adventures and skills with the membership and to help get the word out to those that may need it about the Forestry Forum. They are truly professionals at their timber sports and some of the best in the entire world.

I saw their show at the Topsfield Fair in MA.
I posted pictures of it in the "Fair" thread.
It was a great show for sure.

Mad Murdock asked about our favorite tools.
The chopping axes we use come from New Zealand and Australia, their brands are usually Tuatahi or Keech. There's a new company making them called Brute Force now also. Our throwing axes have always been Tuatahi, but there's a new company in California called Precision Axes that several of our ladies are switching to. Our crosscut saws are mostly Tuatahi. And our chainsaws are of course Stihl!!

Welcome to all you Axe Women Loggers of Maine!!   The first time I heard of you was the Pig Roast threads.  Never have seen your competitions or demonstrations.
First time to see you is on this youtube..



WOW, WOW!  I would surely lose in a competition against any of you.

If your ever near Mississippi my daughter and I will be there to meet you.  Same goes for needing help.
