Eldar, no problem. Tomorrow I'll take a few shots, more detailed, and post them as smaller files so that everything is obvious. Then anyone that wishes can ask questions or even make suggestions for improvements. jrista has me interested in a positioning arm that could hold different props horizontally in front of the log and be adjustable. Keep your eyes open for a rotten woodpecker drilled out stump, as the birds love it.
This is getting a little personal here but, I had those bed springs because my son moved out and I tore his bed apart not wanting to wait until spring when I had my truck to haul it away - funny I looked at the springs and said, hmm these seem useful for something, but I have about 50 of them.
. Anyway, the springs actually work pretty good with the nuts welded above.
Actually, the whole thing could be done in wood if a person just gave it careful thought, but it's hard to beat the old chair for a base. It's actually quite light too.
