Chopping Block.
36" tall
top is 24" in diameter
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.

How did you make the tenons on odd shaped legs? With a spoke shave?

Draw Knife
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
