I cut some round pieces from a log on my chainsaw lumber mill for friends who want them for wedding decorations.

Log rounds are useful for cutting boards, decorations or trivets to hold hot pots and pans. But they are generally not easily cut on a lumber mill.

A lumber mill us generally used to cut logs laying down in order to cut lumber out of them. The mill cuts through the length of the log.

The mill usually has a way to fasten and secure a log to its rain in a horizontal fashion.

But cutting rounds out of a vertical standing log is not so easy. You have to use your head a bit and come up with a way to fasten the log to the mill standing up.

I put a board on the bottom rail of the chainsaw mill frame. This holds the log up off the ground and high enough for me to get some good slices out of the log.

I used a tie down strap to secure the log to the lumber mill so it would not move as I cut it.

Then I made the first cut to take off the angled part of the log and give me a nice flat surface to start with.

Then all it took was to slice off pieces of the log using my chainsaw mill, one after another until it got too low on the log to cut any more.

Next my friend helped me lift the log while we put some more boards underneath it. This raised it up enough to make some more cuts out of the log. The tie down strap worked well to keep the log tight to the frame of the lumber mill.

In the end we had some nice, flat and neatly cut log rounds for wedding decorations. My friends will finish the wood themselves for their wedding.
