This woman is just fabulous. How could you not love to watch her and hear her voice?
I cut the brick just like she did. She uses sticks (just everyday sticks and pine needles) and uses it every day, for her lunch.
She is all into the pressure cooker but I am not there yet.
So far, I can't make it work.
She lives in Tennessee, USA. So the air is about the same.

By the time you cut them you've already cut through the ones that would have splintered, and therefore stopped it from being able to happen.
It's a fine line though to walk. If you leave too much in the hinge and/or trigger it can still barber chair. Leave too little and it can go in a weird direction.
