A woodcutter, also known as a woodcrafter, woodworker or handyperson, is an individual who cuts and prepares wood by hand, with a sharp knife or chisel. They usually work on large projects like bridges, roads, houses and dams. A woodcutter uses either a saw or a knife to cut trees, bricks, flooring, tile and plastic.
Woodcutters were famous and well paid craftsmen in the olden days and as the years went by, the need for woodcutters and their trade diminished. But there are still many woodcutters in Japan, China and other countries, as there are also people who are very much interested in the arts and crafts of woodcrafts and woodcarving in particular. Many woodcutters still practice their craft, while others hire others to do their works for them. Some even offer services as translators between languages, since many woodcutters are often bilingual.
Loggers, or loggers as they are known in the West, are persons who move logs or large trees that have been felled, uprooted or cut down in order to be utilized as wood. Loggers are employed by timber mills, sawmills, lumberjacks and farmers. The jobs of a logger are diverse, from cleaning out huge lumberjacks to setting up camp while on a job. It’s a tough, long and hard job that requires a lot of strength, endurance and strength of mind. Loggers can be found in the United States, Canada, Europe and in some parts of Asia.
