Timber Collection

While i was out about in the woods today i wanted to collect myself a piece of timber for a project i have in mind, i needed a log, or part of, that was about 2.5 to 3ft long by around 8 inches in diameter, so i grabbed my Bergen, so i had a good strong pack to lug the log back in, added a Bucksaw and went to the woods, as you might be able to guess from the photo, it wasn't that dry up there either.

In a brief respite from the rain, i set up the bucksaw and located the piece of timber i needed, the tree i harvested the log from, fell during a storm last winter, so no trees were felled in order for me to take a small log, from what is a large tree, in fact i and a couple of others have previously harvested timber from this very tree, so it's misfortune is our gain. So what do i want a log this big for, well, all will be revealed in the next couple of days or so.
