Making Boards

16 April 2010 | Cajaiba, Baia de Camamu, Brazil
Richard
To make more useful sizes of boards from the big pieces of timber that are delivered, workers take a chainsaw to the timber to cut boards from it. Getting a long cut, straight enough to be used for making a board, requires a lot of practice.

Note the complete lack of eye and foot protection. No one I saw wore eye protection in the boatyards, and the only workers not wearing flip-flops are the ones in bare feet.
