For the local woodturning group I'd like to compile drawings of various ideas for chain saw stations, cutting sections of log into bowl blanks.

Does anyone have plans?  Thanks.

We had quite the discussion about a year or so ago. Be sure in your search to expand time slot, should find it.

Wyoming Woodturner has a pretty new you tube video about his. Doesn't have any drawings or such but you can probably wing it from the video.  Also a large block of wood with a v groove in the center works pretty well.

Searched on "chain saw station" to the beginning of time, only a few results and none seemed part of a discussion on the topic.  Then searched on "chain saw stand" to the beginning of time and more returns but still none seemed part of a discussion on the topic.

Any search suggestions to find plans for a chain saw station or stand?

Try  "chainsawing bowl blanks"

Doc Green has a good article.   Many of the approaches are more crude or rustic than a "station" .

Keyword phrase "sawbuck for bowl blanks"

I also find this type of sawbuck quick and easy to use and build.

Ed... Not sure  what is happening, but that link doesn't work.
Safari says it can't find the server.

Cool, thanks, Ed.

My thinking is something that allows me to roll the log onto a cutting stand as I'm quickly getting to that age where things that are on the ground will end up STAYING on the ground!! Shocked


Correction.... I'm already AT that age!!! Thumbs Up

I was in a hurry and didn't get a chance to explain anything about this style of stand.
Obviously the V side for logs  and flip it over for a flat surface where it's easy to trim off the corners. These are quick & easy to make, the photo is pretty much a bare bones style.
I prefer more than 4 pieces, for me 6 would be minimum.  These can be easily modified for specific sizes and purposes.

Can you find a durable stump sized piece of wood--cut a V in the top--cheap and very steady.

Bruce.. the problem with that stand is that I would have to be able to lift a log onto it.


I'd love to have some sort of stand thingy that allows me to roll a log into place and then using some sort of lever, lift the log onto a stand like yours.

Presently, I have one of these:


...so at least I can get it off the ground.
