Artist's Description

This is the toe hold for a “spring board” in the stump of a big Cedar cut down perhaps over 100 years ago. Before chainsaws, loggers stood on these spring boards and used single or double buck hand saws. We camp on property in the Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, mining district where in the 1880’s over 100,000 people lived during the gold rush. Millions of board feet of lumber was cut for mine support, buildings and various other uses. This is one of the many stumps to be found with the tell-tale toe holds. We stand and look and talk about how over 100 years ago two guys were working this very tree. I’m glad I’m standing with a beer instead of a saw.
