Default chainsaw mill

Been thinking of a decent way to cut logs for a cabin. I came up with a system that I can take both sides off a log then cut it down the middle to make to half logs out of one to stack. The inside will be a flush wall with the outside looking like a normal log cabin. It also makes good lumber.

What I do is put two small logs down to cradle the one I am working up. By making several vertical cuts across the log in the widths I want boards then rotating the saw I can take several boards off in each pass. This is a prototype and I have changed out one part to make it more accurate.

I can set this up by myself so is decently portable.

was thinking of sharing plans if anyone is interested.
