A Tale of Two Sawbucks: Designs for Firewood Cutting Racks

Two readers share their designs for stands that make cutting firewood go more smoothly: the folding wood rack and the log rollway.



Folding Wood Cutting Rack
"Using the rack, I can convert half a dozen or so 8' timbers to stove length in a matter of minutes."

Milo Lamphier's pivoting rack can stand at a steep or shallow angle and still be used comfortably.

Log Rollway Wood Cutting Rack
"Some of the pieces were rather large to try to heft into the kind of vertical rack recommended by Ole Wik, so I devised a much simpler temporary version."

Log Rollway
Canadian reader Harvey Mitchell prefers his rollway setup because it can be put together quickly, using indigenous materials.
