help with sawbuck
I have a project I want to do and that is to make a "sawbuck". You may not call "it" that but when I grew up that is what they called them in northern WI. In those days almost everyone had one as supplmental wood heat and being poor you did your own wood. I recall seeing lots of designs depending on who made it and how good they were at woodworking. Some used logs others 2X4's or 2X6's...... Some lashed them together some pegged them, nails, wire, spit....... OK maybe not that last one.
I'd like to make one out of either 2X4 or 2X6 and make it look like a craftsman made it. I will not be doing any major "logs" but might do a few tree limbs but a lot of its use is for looks. I have some used 2X6 cedar so that will most likly be my wood choise.
The design I'm picturing is a X=X==X looking thing, if you can picture that. I could just guess at things but if someone has made one or has plans for one or has any idea of what I'm talking about and wants to comment please do so.
