I welded up a log arch and I'm going to move around some very large logs this weekend. Some of these logs are almost 48" in diameter and 10, 12, 16 feet long. I would like to invite my Permies friends to come watch so they can witness a sweet piece of homemade farm equipment in action.

Where: 3238 Spurgin Rd, Missoula
When: 2-6pm, Saturday, 1/11/20

Looks nice.  I'm to far away to come watch.  Do you have more pictures?

I am also much too far, but interested in pics, and specs on the structural aspects would  be interesting!

Waving from the UK. Likewise very interested in what you have put together. We have chunky logs to move from time to time. Like the butt of the 80ft lime tree that dropped a few weeks ago. 6ft diameter.

Might need a bigger bit of kit for that though!
