firewood bonanza

Due to the recent floods in the area our local beach was piled high in wood.So last weekend we managed to get two pickup loads away.
With it all cut and stacked the hard work was worth it, more so now the gas and electricity prices have just gone up.
Afew months ago i made one of these http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_z4ar_he_o this its by far the best saw horse that i have ever used, so if you are handy with a welder its a great project if you cut alot of wood.
The only change i made was to splay the foot bars for extra stabillity..............Magnet

Don't put drift wood in a wood burner though. The salt is bad news for the flue.

That one looks like it's bolted together, so you don't necessarily need to weld.
And he seems to be struggling through that wood. Is it something really hard, or is his saw blunt?

Oh yes, very clever.

Should be able to charge somebody to clear that.
Is there a phone number on the bridge?
