Wood is beautiful. Even more when 100% natural. Trees themselves are marvelous, so it pains me to kill one to use its precious wood. I tried to find a way to create wooden furniture without having to cut down any tree. Here is one of my favourite solution : The REAL wood hamac.

Branches have to be cut for many reasons like safety, aesthetic or health of the tree. Before to start the chainsaw, I suggest you read this .PDF and learn this art. A bad job could kill a tree or make it sick. Like animals, plant's wounds can get infected.
