    Bolts for the 3 cross members with large washers so it folds easily, and countersunk them so they don't stick out at all. The rest is screwed with regular deck type outdoor screws.

    . . . unless you land your wood right on the edge of a field where farmers have been tossing rocks to the side for years . . . and you happen to be Firefighterjake . . . in which case you will be able to totally frig up your chain. ;)

    I really like my saw buck. I doubled up the center x to hold the cut branches. That way I don't have to pick the cut branches off the ground again. photo.JPG
