That "sick" thought seemed to last about as long as it took to write the paragraph, I reckon. :lol:
erm,... Play Up Pompey!
I don't believe it happened unless........
I look out the window and see piles of logs waiting to be split- that is my day dream every day while I am at work starring at that stupid brick wall.
I will give you my address and you can drop some logs off in my driveway! I know i'm about an hour north of you if that! I promise I will put it to good use! LOL
BIG saw! Can I share your toys?
I don't want to get rid of it. I'm just itching to get back into it and I can't!
believe me i know your pain this spring i cut split and stacked 7 cords in 13 days. all by hand to i wasnt looking at a piece of wood all summer but i have half a truckload of logs sitting at the base of the driveway just waiting to be bucked and split. should be around 4 cords i figure ill work on it in the colder months and have the warmer ones to myself. take a breather hit it hard
Lets see who can ID "what's wrong with this picture?"
That is an very clean saw to be sporting on that pile of cut wood. Like it is new. How many peoples neck's were getting sore from looking at a pic at 45 deg. angle.
That its not in my garage yet??
(I want one / secretly)
That's the two things I got out of it too.
That saw isn't running.
Those splits were done horizontally?
• Saw looks like a virgin, can't have worked on that stack, can it?
•I think the photo is actually taken from above, not from the side as it appears.
If it had been taken from the side as it "appears" that whole woodpile would have fallen as there are some limbs that are shown in gravity defying positions, including the large smooth one that "appears" to be leaning forward...
•Also, probably not a safe way to leave a chainsaw? And since it's (IMO) from above, would that leak bar oil?
• Maybe a bit long bar for not so big logs.
• Messy pile of splits, rounds and longer sections.
PS What is that smooth bark section ?-- kinda purdy wood
Pic is from the side. Pile is tall. Saw had not been started at that point. As far as smooth bark goes, I don't think there is any. Pile contains White Oak, Hickory, Cherry and Elm, which I think is what you're referring to. No bark. And yes, the bar is long. Thank you very much.
hahaha....Is he trading away 3 year seasoned oak for fresh poplar and "future prospects"?
Been there mywaynow.
In the past I got sick of splitting sooner when the wood I was getting was absolute trash. This stuff was deadfall that laid on the ground for who knows how long.
Some of it was so bad I burned it outside.
After this season I will be on to much better wood. I am actually anxious to split this stuff because I know it will not fall apart like my old mushy trash wood.
BTW, have fun with the new family member. I keep watching that big brown stork (UPS truck ) fly by my house but he hasn't stopped in a while.
