Having cut the trunk into sections with the intention of floating them across the lake behind my boat I was concerned that lifting them out of the water and carrying them up the slope to the cabin would not be so easy, so while drinking my coffee I came up with a plan of action.
Firstly I cut a “V” into the Birch tree stump and then cut the long lever pole into three sections, lashed them together and incorporating the tree stump, made a simple saw-horse.
Placing a length of trunk on the saw-horse
I could then saw it into logs
ready to load into the boat
I rowed them across the lake back to the cabin in two loads
This took most of the day, but by late afternoon all the logs were back at the cabin
Some logs had sections of bark that I can use for projects to I cut the bark
removed it and stored it for future projects
Nothing different in the way of birds and wildlife today.
