    Also split a little of @Wood Doctor wood and fixed a tire on the splitter. He needs to get out some pallets to get it stacked on.

    Got the 84 out today to cut some nice Doug Fir. I couldn't stay in the house for another minute.

    Helped my Dad split a few rounds this past weekend. He is 88 and had to carry the larger pieces to show me he still can.

    Look how nicely that all of these rounds are cut the same length with square ends. That makes them all so much easier to split, stack, and burn. Beautiful work from Rhode Island.

    Here is some of what I’ve done. Had a couple monster white oaks to clean up. My 10 year old boy is over 4 foot tall so you can compare the tree to him. Took me quite a few loads with the truck and trailer. Love the smell of oak!
    That stacked wood pile is 5 rows deep and there are 3 rows on the other side of the shed. Took a lot of work, but man it feels good when I see all of it stacked and looking purty.

    Thanks! Used my stock 461 with a ES 25” bar. Had to cut on both sides for each cookie, but with a sharp chain that cuts straight, it went really well. Bought that saw new several years ago and it’s been solid. I had to split those rounds in quarters just move them after I rolled them close to the splitter! Those were some long days. Had to finish with a

    Nice.
    I do the same thing to big rounds in woods. I quarter them before moving them. Only way to move them. Lol

    It just dawned on me that I have a nice dolly with good sized tires. Maybe I’ll bring that with me the next time I split some big rounds into quarters. I’m not getting younger...just wiser ;)

    Today I made a mistake and forgot to noodle cut in half four big red elm rounds that I bucked to 18" lengths. I figured I could lift them onto the tailgate. Yes, I did it, but dang it guys, I needed my head examined. Those rounds weighed a ton. Gas is cheap compared to a wiped out back.

    And, I had a beautiful Husky 257 with a 20" bar loaded with a sharp chain waiting to be used. That saw shook its head for 20 minutes after I did that. The 257 had far more brains than I did.:rolleyes:

    Lol. I hear you...I've done the same thing, then regret that I didn't noodle on site.

    Then there's yet another aspect. The guy who often helps me split the logs by loading those big rounds onto the splitter's beam will groan and moan. So will the log splitter when it tries extra hard to take them down. There is no end to it. :oops:
