    One of my sons got me a Northern Tools firewood sawhorse for Christmas. Here's the link:

    http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200448974_200448974

    The sawhorse seems to be pretty rugged. The steel is heavy gauge with a nice finish. It is well designed, easy to put together and take apart, and the legs fold into the body for storage. The only wood I had to practice on were some branches trimmed from fig and pear trees, but it worked great for those. (Pictures below, but out of order. Picture 1 shows how compact the sawhorse is when folded up, and picture 3 should come before picture 2 .) I wish I had this last year. Will make cutting easier on your back and save time. As always, one has to be careful, but I have the feeling this will be safer than leaning logs on top of each other. There is a rail to hold the wood down, but it might be a good idea to add a bungee cord for the same purpose.

    Here's the picture missing from the previous post. Three cuts for the wood.

    Where did you buy the sawbuck? You must get along with your neighbors. That little electric saw must be really quiet. I do get some looks when I fire up my saw in town. But I at least wait till after 9.

    Is that one different than the Northern Tool one? Where did you get it?
