Chester Lynn called me a couple of days ago. He owns Annabelle's Florist and Antique Shop on the Back Road, and he wanted to show me a two-man crosscut saw that was used on Ocracoke more than eighty years ago.
I had seen other antique saws like this one, but I had always understood that they were used in logging and forestry work. You may be wondering what this saw was used for on Ocracoke Island. It wasn't for cutting trees.
If you think you know, or have a guess, for how this saw was employed, please leave a comment. I will post the answer on Monday.
