I do too. But I need to cut them the other direction because they're too long.

I´ve been using a miter saw and even a movable one is not ideal, still kick backs on occasion. I have tried a recipro saw but that didn´t really work because the saw buck I was using was not sturdy enough.

Recently, I got to use a Stihl metal saw buck from a neighbour and that was really stable. So I´m picking one up and I just ordered a cordless B&D chainsaw. That should do the trick.

Short of a bucksaw and buckhorse I think a miter/chop saw is very safe if used properly. You need to have the log fully supported on the side of the blade that is doing the holding and the other side free from both bed and fence.

I am right handed so I hold the work piece to the bed and fence left of the blade. I will use some scrap wood as needed on the left bed and fence to keep the right side of the piece clear of both. This way there is nothing to cause a blade bind situation.

Bandsawing round objects freehand is a lot less safe. -- Stumpy

This guy appears to be using a miter saw to cut down splits:

He must be inexperienced and clueless about BBQ. :-)

I think I'll add a chain to my sawbuck, that may very well keep the small splits from rolling. Looks like that chain has a spring on one end, but does it use a clevis hook ?


If I were going to build a sawbuck again, I would make it higher. I have to bend at the waist to cut splits and after a while it wears on the lower back.


Speaking of kindling crackers and working height .......... I have mine mounted on a stump. But the stump is 3 years old and its beginning to get well seasoned. After a bit of use, the lag bolts loosen. I'm probably headed back to the woodlot to buy another stump. But is there another way ?

Doesn't mean he isn't doing something dangerous.

I do woodworking for a living. I cannot stress it enough that using a table saw or miter saw is absolutely dangerous and should not be done. They are built to be used with flat surfaces. When cutting curved or irregular sitting surfaces, it is only a matter of time before you will experience kickback or worse, the saw catching the wood and sending your hand into the blade. The $80 B&D alligator saw may not be the fastest but it will more than make up for the cost of a trip to the emergency room or loss of fingers.
