Today we continued to work on the logs that we split yesterday. We started by removing all the bark and sapwood with a chainsaw. Left outside in the damp and rain the sapwood will just rot away so we take the log down to just the heartwood which is much more durable. After the basic shaping with the chainsaw we use an arbortec cutter to take out any rough bits and refine the shape. Finally we use a sanding disk to smooth the whole surface. Seven log pieces in all, so quite a lot of work.
