To post a video on the Forestry Forum you must first upload the video to YouTube and then post a link to the video in your post on the Forum.

You use YouTube to host the video because the Forestry Forum does not have enough data storage space to keep all the videos...

Fine build.  You know, once you start using it, it will never look new again! :D

Do you have a load of wood to put in it?
