If you spend a lot of time cutting your own firewood, you'll love this modular firewood holder that secures limbs off the ground for easier cutting.
Cutting limbs on the ground can be back-breaking work. Constantly bending over to cut the limbs and then putting them in a pile can quickly lead to fatigue. When you're tired, you're more likely to make a mistake — like touch your chainsaw bar to the ground which will instantly dull it.
So, if you cut limbs often, you can build a firewood holder that can be mounted in multiple locations and can accommodate limb sizes of varying diameter. It works by utilising an arm mechanism that swings down securing one end of the limb in place, while the weight of the wood keeps it from moving. The arm can swing up depending on the size of the tree limb and the hip level height makes it easier to cut as you no longer need to bend over.
You need to having some welding skills before you attempt to build this. Watch the video above to see how it's done.
