Cut up a little "biscuit" wood this afternoon. So called because it last long enough to make a batch of biscuits. All spruce slabs,our favorite kindling wood.
The roller conveyor with the chainsaw pivot works really good.I much prefer it over the pto buzz saw I used before.
The tire bolted to the rock maple block has also become a favorite for splitting kindling or re-sizing splits for the cook stove.
86° here today sun felt good, trees are just starting to leaf out here in central Vermont.


Spruce slabs from my mill. What doesn't go to stove wood becomes a corduroy road.

Fiskar's axe is a keeper. I told my wife we don't have a lawn we have a wood yard, less mowing.

Al, the eastern white pine will last for years in the woods, be it standing or on the ground. I feed my OWB a steady diet of it.
As I say, if it will take together, I haul it out, if it breaks off, I go back and get it.  ;D
That white maple I have, is gone in a few years. I still have some pine stumps form the grown-up pasture that I can't get out. Those maple stumps are long gone.
Oak will last forever, I think.
I did burn some softwood in wood stove, for a couple years, as swampdonkey is doing.
I have a guy up the road that tells me you can't burn softwood in a wood stove.

Just ignore the unindoctrinated and inexperienced. ;D They burn softwood and birch out west by the train loads. I see Cody on Wangler Star channel, he's still waiting from summer out there and feed'n DF in the stove for him and his cat in the shop. ;)

Really good set up Mick. I like that conveyor with the saw pivot. Where do you have the saw bolted? Through the bar or through the bumper spike?

I made a plate for the bottom of the saw from a piece of 3/16th flat stock. 2 holes drilled to match the handle mount, ¾'' square tube welded to the plate.Pivots on piece of cold rolled round which is welded to the conveyor frame.Nothing fancy just a shade tree hack.

Hope this helps.

You can burn anything from swamp willow to ironwood . Pine is not native in this area and what little of it I have gets slowly burned up in my fire ring on one of my patios .The only pine that goes in my stove is just kindling .Hardwood  the more dense it is the longer it burns .i've got three bass woods the wind got this spring I will cut up .Not the best stuff but never the less it is a source of heat .They are large enough for lumber but then what could it be used for other than berry boxes and lettuce crates .Certainly not to frame a barn .
