It’s understandable if you don’t know what this thing is. After all, lumberjacking is a lost art form that only the roughest, toughest people do. Oh, and also hipsters who want to look like they’re one with nature. When this guy came across this metallic object on their parent’s new piece of land in British Columbia, they had to find out what it was.
This is a log jack. Log jacks help loggers tumble and drag large logs after felling trees. They usually have long handles attached to them, so this is an incomplete log jack that would work better as a paperweight than to actually move logs around.
