Finally got around to makin me a log holder for test cuts and general time passing due to excessive boredom. Gotta do something to take the edge of living in this intense suburban logging territory :lol:




Now I just gotta keep a supply of 4-6' logs around :thumbsup:

That's a good idea. I'll probably turn it sideways. Don't want to get on the other side of it, would put it too far out behind the building for my taste. We should have painted that siding over a year ago.... :lol:

It's a hard day when you realize two years in a row you could have sold twice as many snowblowers if you moved 500+ miles SOUTH!!!!

Wish I'd made a heavier one. This puppy moves all over unless you drag the spikes down the log...

Anybody got some pics of their log holders? Any ideas for weight addition? I know I made mine out of cheap 2x4's but I'd like some added weight for stability. I've got a few brake rotors from the pickup that are kinda hefty.... Or maybe something else is easier?

You could build a frame around the bottom of the legs and then throw sand bags over the frame, or something like that. I made a metal stand. I'll get pics some time.
