Getting ready for winter.

Recommended Posts

  Been getting the log stocks up this afternoon. There was quite a pile requiring splitting. Number 3 grandson was going to split them during the school holidays. But he went and got himself a summer job at a local holiday camp. :rolleyes: So all left to me, so I thought I'd better make a start.


  Finished cutting and stacking this lot of smaller stuff.




  Then I started on this lot. Half done when I took this photo.




  Several barrow loads later, lost count of how many.




This 3ft wide x 8ft long x 4ft high cage ended up 3/4 full.




  It's really hard work splitting logs with a splitting mall. So.…….










  I got this log buster. :D

  Had another day with chainsaw, saw bench and log splitter. Still got about 1-1/2 ton of 2-3ft dia 5yr old Leylandie to cut and split. But that will have to wait for a while. All log storage space is now full. But I do now have room for the felled trees in the field opposite. As soon as they've harvested, I'll be in there. :thumbs:

  Must admit the log splitter was a good buy. Saves a lot of back ache and time. Should have bought one years ago.

Been doing the same these last two days and totally agree about the log splitter, I've had one for ten years and it has saved a lot of backache and time over the years.

Have also been doing my bit to save the planet by using an old oil tank as a wood store


Might not need so much this year as the project of the last three years, my 1937 Triumph Gloria Vitesse Tourer is now back on the road.

 That Triumph is superb. :bow:


 Just as well I got that wood above logged and stored, when I did. Mate of mine has bought a property north of Dumfries and called last Sunday. Left about 1-1/2 ton of logs behind. :thumbs:

Maybe I'll do a topic in the restoration section about all the blood sweat and tears expended over the last three years on the Triumph but I don't have nearly as many photos of before, during and after that most folk seem to put up.
I've still some back up logs to split yet.

We had a lot of wind blown trees a few years ago and ran out of space.
