The Chainsaw Sawmill

  1. I started with these two poles.

First I designed it.

Then I cut them to length.

Then I drilled the holes and bolted it together.

I still need one more crossbar and a handle for control.  Plus spacers to keep the blade from hitting.  But here it is with the electric chainsaw attached.

Not as fancy as this $140 one, but mine only cost $10 in nuts and bolts.
