Camp oak chop block is same height, I use an old tire from a ride mower to hold the small log when I chop, saves me from picking up the pieces. Back aint what it used to be. Have another larger mower tire for bigger logs
Yours is too nice to butcher up.

I drew circle in center of leg (circle is from gal. milk jug cap, it's close to 1 1/2" and that's the tendon I wanted)
measured down the leg 3" and marked all sides
cut shoulder with saw for 3" long tendons
used hatchet to remove bulk of tendon
finished, smoothed & rounded, with Draw Knife
Thanks for noticing the tendons.
I put an 11 degree splay on the leg holes. So I had to put an 11 degree angle on the tendon shoulder as well. But no one sees this work or detail...lol
