Thanks!  Definitely heavy; I don't think I'll be wiggling it into any tight places!  What you made looks far more reasonable!  How big of a log can you get with it?
Thanks,

DanG, looks like mine. I even painted mine red since the pic was taken.

Thought I'd post a pic of the first really big log on the arch.  I messed around for a couple of months with getting an electric winch mounted, wasted some money, and finally gave up and decided to use a chain-fall for the time being.  







and some odds-and-ends boards (sourwood and rock-maple) we stacked last weekend:




I need to put the v-brace/log trap thing under the beam so I can winch logs up with more weight behind the chain, and not need to secure the front as much.  This time, it worked out, as I needed the weight on the hitch, but I'll have to come up with something better soon.

I built one.  It didn't look near that good.
