On the log cutting front
#1
I have found some brackets that will turn my work mate bench into a saw horse.  Smile They fasten to the work mate bench which I hope will hold logs more secure whilst I cut them, ready for splitting . Just thought I'd share for others out there who cut their own logs.

We have an old wooden sawhorse which was made for us by a retired carpenter about 20 years ago and it is still wearing well, and it gets used.  This week we have cut down a few old hawthorn and a couple of willow, so it will be used again this week ... for next winter's logs.   We also retrieved some ash which had fallen over in the high winds a few weeks ago.  Now is the time to cut back the heavy branches before the leaves appear - especially when they are near telephone cables  Exclamation ....... and it saves going to the gym !!!!

I have been lucky with logs so far my niece collected lots for me. I still have some here that need cutting and splitting with more stored at her allotment. Earlier this week Liam's social worker visited and has promised to deliver us a trailer load later in the year. He gets logs for free by cutting them for other people. I have an electric chain saw here which I use but find it difficult holding the logs secure whist cutting, hence the holding brackets will be a big help.
