Answers
The Tin Woodman was engaged to be married, and he was so busy cutting timber that he cut off his arms, legs, and head. Then, he split his body in half with his axe. With each cut, a tinsmith came to the rescue, creating a new part. The Woodman recalls his life prior to being made entirely of tin, and he now believes that he is unable to love because he doesn't have a heart.
