Rack Speeds Up Wood Cutting
"I've been using this wood-cutting rack for the past few years. It speeds up the job and lets me make very uniform length firewood," says Ron Goosen, Valcourt, Quebec.
  "The base of the 10-ft. long rack is made from 2-in. sq. tubing; the upper part from 1-in. tubing. The "U's" are spaced 8 in. apart. I make a cut every 16 in., guided by a spot of paint at every other cutting space. If I want 24-in. logs, I make a cut at every third space. The width of the "U's" needs to coincide with the length of the cutting bar on your chainsaw. I line each log up with the end of the rack. If the logs are longer than the rack, I cut them off flush with the end and pile them back in on the next load. If a log is too wide to fit the rack, I just set it on top with my bale forks. The rack works best with logs from 2 to 8 in. dia., and also with sawmill slabs."
