This is an economical way to turn what may have become firewood into small stock for router projects. The piece on the carriage is "Spalted Maple" found along side my road here in Michigan. I did not realize what I had until I made the first chan saw cut move it off the road, then my eyes lit up and and I went home, got the trailer and filled the truck with 3-4 ft lengths. Very heavy, but well worth it. I then had to quarter the logs with a chain saw into pieces small enough and light enough to resaw with the carriage. Anyone can make this device, it's that simple. Some may find ways to improve upon it as well. Let me know you successes! Bill
