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.

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

"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."
