I enjoy making lumber with my chainsaw mill but the small logs and the last cuts on big logs, it can be really hard as far as holding the log in place to mill it low to the ground and all. I decided to solve that by looking at what materials I had and then making a log stand. It cost me nothing as I had all the parts.
Check it out....
I used some old trailer stands that I had on some 10 inch boards....
Then I used some pole sections from a old tarp garage I had in Wisconsin. I can angle the cuts with the stand threads so I am always going down hill as gravity really helps in these cuts.
I also used a aluminum rail from the old rv awning we had to connect them together. It comes apart with two bolts to store it, it is light weight (like 20 lbs) and I can carry it right to the logs out in the woods....
Here is a log on it and remember and one screw from under neath holds it on place. Remember; I made this for logs light enough to set on it or for the last cuts off a bigger logs, first milled on the ground. I will have a video of this set up and me milling on it soon to add to this post. With 2 x 4 x 8 pine boards at like $7 each; I say chainsaw mill away on the homestead!!!!
God be praised
