There is whole topic about it called the origins of the Forestry Forum here:http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,30658.0.htmlBut I'll try to summarize. My Granddad made ice cream during the depression.He used an old saw to cut the ice to fill the icehouse from the river to have during the summer.My Aunt gave my dad the old icesaw, and he gave it to me.I tired to get someone to paint a picture of the old farm on the saw but could not afford it.I told Tammy I was going to do it myself, get me some paints so I can practice.Tammy Laughed.A year later I had sold over 100 paintings and had 2 one man gallery shows.I built a website to promote my paintingsThe website attracted more attention than the art.I got my first job building a commercial website for a grocery store chain.I had something happen at the mill that made me come home and pretend I had 40 acres and was looking for a timberbuyer.I built the Timber Buyers Network.The forum came from that website.Whew. The link to the original topic is a little more interesting.Picture of the saw from a few years ago.(Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
