  1. This is just what I needed to see! I just got all the large logs from a southern silky oak (not a true oak) last weekend and a mesquite tree earlier this year. I have a lot of milling to do and your video showed exactly what I need to make to get it done. Thanks Kyle! – Jay

  2. Nice build Kyler and great explanation. I am running out of space for things like that so maybe if I made it as a combo lawn chair my wife would approve of it. LOL
    When you were putting in those bottom braces and said they could be a little more even it reminded me of what someone I used to work with would say. "Cant see it from my house" But yours looked plenty even to me.
    Nice material list as well. Well done!

  3. This type of thing is what make Northern people great. Just cold enough to make you think now. Can't wait till -30C sets in. LOL.
