Things are finally trying to dry up here. Reclaiming firewood for house and sugar shack from leftover tops from logs cut this winter.





It is a long haul out of there, this small diameter limb and cull stuff goes to mill yard for bucking not just dumped at intermediate landings that are scattered around for piles of firewood logs. That means “go light and go often “ gets lightly amended to “stop before springs go negative arch”.. the trailer was a freebie that held chicken coop for a few years until outgrown and this was the first trip hauling wood with it after replacing smashed coupler and adding industrial quantities of slime to tires  ;D




 
From trailer to one of these pallet sawbucks to get brappppped into stove wood. Hilarious inefficient use of time but good whole tree utilization and there are LOTS worse I could be doing with that time.

MF-  if you put the sawbuck on the trailer it could save you a step.  make kids pick and stack the pile after you braahppp it up.  if no kids, make kids first.

Got a PM about this as well and think it is a solid idea (not the kids part). Have brought sawbuck to where I was cutting on tractor forks, filled it up then brought to where piles are before cutting and that worked great. Also turns out that one overloaded pile on that weee lil trailer = just over a sawbuck load.

Have an idea in mind for a wacky limb trailer that is also sawbuck.. uprights made to accept standoffs bolted to chainsaw bar (unistrut or something bolted to uprights for a channel to slide in?). Put saw bar standoffs into uprights, brappp, tip bed to dump that section of rounds, move saw to next set of uprights, repeat?? Thinking on good clamping setup that moves from one set of uprights to the next, maybe just slides along trailer rub rail like a strap winch? Basically that sawbuck but with sliding channels on uprights for saw like a bad vertical chainsaw mill and a way to clamp the pile, on wheels w/ dump capability..  :P  :-X  :D
Perpendicular stacking issues and settling aside, one 8' long sawbuck 32" wide and stacked around 2' tall to keep center of gravity low means a face cord/rick a trip and it is easy to come up with wood to fill that in a hurry just from tops and clearing saw thinnings.

I burn a lot of limb wood too. I have a 3 pt winch. I lay down a 8 foot chain and pile the small wood on that. Than I just hook the chain and winch it in. Have hauled out 3 hitches this way. I just unhook it and saw through it. Well try too. I can take a 54 inch stick in my OWB, so length is no big deal. I find the ones I miss when I pick the wood up to burn.

Nothing like what most of you have, but I just finished splitting and stacking this for spring/summer fire pit.  Red oak, cedar, pine, cherry, and maple.

I take my wood down small too, not much for a top left. ;D Saves a lot of splitting, but adds to the trips to the wood pile to fill the stove. Drop half the sticks carrying it to the stove. I don't have arms like a grapple boom. Can't have it all. :D

Way too neat and way to accurate on the bucking lengths. Ahhh, when you don't have to deal with the whining public.  I learned from dad, it's just firewood, don't get fussy. It all comes out ashes.  :D

Did a hundred bundles of sticks for someone once. Started with this. The sticks REALLY jump around when being cut if they do not have something keeping them in place, because as cutting progresses, the sticks loosen and settle..



 

 So I improved upon it a bit with this. Once you start the cut you have to level out your saw so that the weight of the saw, and the pulling action of the chain keep the sticks up against the 2x6's on the other side.

For slabs off of the sawmill, we bundle and sell as firewood/kindling

I have a fair amount of smaller limb wood when we cut hedge. I run the smaller wood threw my buzz saw. Works great. Its more work loading that smaller stuff into the Garn buts its still hedge firewood and makes a lot of BTU'S.

for stick bundle bucking,  use either bungee cords or garage door springs between the twine at each pack for an auto-tension mechanism.  that way as the vibratory settling progresses, the bail tightens up and retains compaction.  tie your twine tighter after.  


i find making a loop on a bight and then putting the tail through that loop in the other direction,  finishing with half hitches, is a good way to do it.  that way you can always tighten up a loose pile.   when i did bundles i tied the tails together for a carry handle. the more bundles a person can carry the more theyll buy.

I burn a lot of 4" and smaller birch poles salvaged from clearing trails as well as saw slabs at my cabin.  The birch sticks are nearly limb-less so it's pretty easy to grab a bunch out of the woods.  My favorite method for bucking them is actually to skip the chainsaw and the racking and just buck them on the table saw.  I'm off-grid, so it's generator fired, but a good excuse to charge some batteries.  I just move the cheap table saw over near the woodpile to my "sawdust landing" and start grabbing the sticks from truck or pile and buzz them to nice, even 14" lengths for the Jotul or sauna stove.  The leftover end if too short for a proper firewood stick gets chucked in the general direction of the fire pit.  Rather than feed the sticks in as if cross cutting a board, I feed from the side with the guards off and the rip-fence set for stick length.

My dad burned cords and cords of hardwood flooring crosscut on a table saw that way.  Drums were all around the saw to toss the pieces into.
