    I have a stand that I built to use for cutting logs and can rest the logs on that to nibble the edges off... but sometimes I have been known to put a larger blank on a couple of logs, put my foot on it and nibble around the edges with the chain saw... I know... dangerous, not smart, an accident waiting to happen, but.........it's expedient and works.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Those little mini saw bucks look nice and strong, but unfortunately my back isn't... about fifteen minutes working bent over that little thing, I would be finished for the day.... I built mine similar in design, but at waist height... it's easier for me to heft the logs higher than to bend over to cut them low....
