When locals want to make a new perahu, or traditional boat, the first thing they do is search for a big tree in the forest. They will cut off all of its branches, and with the help of the neighbors and a chainsaw, they will cut it down.

In the picture you can see a big tree that has been already taken down. Next step is to pull it to the workshop, and start carving the inside.
