Here are some pictures of my wood cradle. I can cut wood down to about 14" long, and then spit what is left. It has three concrete blocks strapped together with a cable hanging from the 2×4. Works great. I put a plastic garbage can under it to catch most of the wood being cut. Dump the cut wood onto my old rabbit pen the sawdust go though. Sort out the small pieces and put the into the funnel and down into my bag that is in a small barrow. The big pieces go to the splitting pile. Using a electric chain saw and keeping the chain sharp is the secret to cutting smooth and quickly.
I have been working on shed to put the bagged wood in. It is also going to have a wood crib attached to it to dry the wood if it isn’t dry enough. Then I will just open the shoot and the wood will fill my bags and stack them in the shed. Probably will build it next spring. I angled the roof to pick up some solar heat, should paint it black or dark green.
I am also putting up some roofing to keep to rain and snow out from under my porch, and will have a wood cut area under there, so when the weather turns to it wet/snowy mode I will have a dry place to cut up wood and store it. I will put my table saw under there, to cut up my demeional lumber. There’s a lot more to gasification then one realises, but it is all fun and worth the hard work. Speaking of rain it just started to rain here. Yha! I have my wood covered up.
Been wanting to do this dry place area under the porch for some time now. Wood Gasifiing is good incentive to get it gone.
