    Man chopping stone slabs with axe - GIF

    Man chopping stone slabs with axe. Or I guess that's a splitting maul. I like the sandals and invisible safety glasses.

    Safety glasses, ehhh, don't wear mine often either. And I do not picture him in those Croc safety toe sandals appearing elsewhere.

    I'm glad the guys working on our house observe all safety procedures (note the electrical box next to his feet)

    hard to get good help these days and when you find one give him a little latitude in the safety department but make him furnish a notarized note stating that any accidents he encounters are on his hide not yours all the more reason I made all my contractors have their own insurance or if they needed to run under my blanket then they had to follow certain protocols or they were cut loose
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Line? I didn't see no line he just eyeballed his cuts and everyone on them from the perspective of the video were mere millimeters different
    Like already stated amazing hand eye coordination. Defiantly not the first time he has done this

    If you're working that hard it helps to be in comfy shoes.
