Over the years, timber-based activity has become second nature to Winkleigh's Beams family.
The trio of Dale, Amanda and son Daniel are on the Gold Coast preparing to take part in the annual Australian Stihl Timbersports championships over the weekend as the only family covering all three categories: men's, women's and rookies.
"We've always competed in woodchopping since Dale and I were kids but to be able to have a family and our boys take it on as well, that's pretty cool," Amanda said.
Across the three categories, 54-year-old Dale is set to have the heaviest workload as the seasoned campaigner looks to earn his spot on the Australian Chopperoos team to compete on the world stage in Prague.
Outside of the top eight rankings for the open division, Dale had to compete on Friday to qualify for Saturday's final, which takes place across six disciplines - underhand, standing block, stock saw, spring board, single buck and hot saw, the latter of which is a challenge.
"In the men's they use the hot saws so you have to be pretty well-trained on how to use them because it's like a 330cc motorbike or jet ski engine with a bar and a chain on it so you've got to be able to hang onto the bugger."
After finishing second in the rookie division multiple times, 23-year-old Daniel is looking to go one step further in Saturday's final.
Due to rookies being classified as an under-25 division, Daniel has been able to have several attempts at the crown but this year seems to be his best shot according to his Mum.
"He's about ready for number one I think. If he can win that, the rookie goes away in May.
"He's done a lot of work this year so hopefully everything will go well and he will get that number one."
Attempting to reclaim her 2017 Australian title, Amanda is no slouch on the axe herself and is confident in her abilities to bring the win back to the West Tamar.
"I'm pretty keen to have that title again. My prep has been pretty good - Dale and I went to the US in July and had a run in the lumberjack world champs and have done a bit of work in all disciplines so I think I'm going to be okay to get on a podium and if I can get that number one it will be even better."
The Beamses join fellow Tasmanians Matthew and Daniel Gurr, Josh Bakes and Kody Steers competing for the Stihl Timbersports gold.
