    When I mentioned to Mrs Woodchip I was getting a Yule log this year, I don't think she was expecting this......

    The last laugh might be on her though.

    I'll be cutting it with a bow saw, now I've dragged it home I realise my 12"chain saw is too small :)

    Is that birch? Looks like a lot of work with the bow saw. I'd cut as much as I could with the chainsaw and finish with the bowsaw.

    Good idea, and yes, it's silver birch.

    Not as good as oak, but it was free and not too far to drag :)

    I'd like to know why a 12" saw would not cut that.

    The chain saw comes out later, this is the biggest bit of wood I have ever dragged home, it just seemed to big for the chain saw when I first looked at it.

    Bit sad when I see some of the enormous trees in other pictures on here being split with ease..... :)

    Yes but wait until you get some really big ones. Your saw won't go through these things!

    My small log made a really puny pile of wood compared to what you could get from your enormous tree.....

    I ought to be depressed, but at least it cut easier than expected, and I was inside toasting myself in front of the fire within half an hour........

    Just pleased I didn't waste time with the bow saw :)
