miter saw, like everyone mentioned. be careful though, sometimes the uneven splits can be a bit testy getting through.

Thanks! Though a lot of the guys using a miter in that thread were cutting full rounds. Talk about unsafe. There is no safe way to clamp down rounds.

I will be cutting wood that is already split, clamped down, and going slow with the cut. Another post in the older thread said he splits on a miter and it worked out well.
I'd use a band saw IF I had one. Or I'd use a sawzall if I had one of them. Unfortunately the most I have are the miter, circular, jig, and a variety of hand saws and hand tools.

I'll be sure to take some pics on saturday to document the process.

This is an aside. You mentioned that your Shop Vac motor burned out. I have a couple Shop Vacs. The biggest, something like 30 gal. Here's my point, 2 or 3 years after buying the bigget vac the motor went bad. I contacted Shop Vac and they replaced it. Then a few years later the new one went bad(one of these was a burnt out switch). If memory is right both were free. If it's not a Shop Vac brand I'd still contact customer service. Customer Service with Shop Vac for me has been fantastic.
