    I would have thought your second paragraph, although correct to an extent, is irrelevant as you were telling from the ground?

    I would also say that Dave uses kerf cuts below the hinge to prevent from the tear down... where as you have compromised the hinge width by directly cutting the corners off.

    What's your take on these points?

    Dan said Maple, Cory said Norway maple. Around here I only seem to see Sycamore maple/ Acer pseudoplatanus. So hinge wise I wouldn't have a clue.

    saying that hinge was "compromised" by the corner cuts is like saying a 7,000 lb rope is compromised by using a running bowline to lower a 150 lb limb. Technically its true, but completely irrelevant to the function.

    SO are you gonna answer the question... kerf cuts at height, yes.

    But you were felling from the floor. Explain yourself please or is just drama you're after?
