Do you know anyone who knows how to use and has a chainsaw? They can cut them up in a flash.

If you are looking for really even cuts a sawmill is your best bet. Do you have any locally? But as long as you aren’t setting a cake on them you probably can cut them with a chainsaw they shoul d turn out even enough for less exacting things.

@cuvergrl20:  You could also use a table saw or a radial arm saw because they can be set to make consistent width cuts.

My fiancé did these for his sister’s wedding.  He cut them at a lumber mill down the road, sanded them and then painted them with a clear poly.  They looked really good but took awhile (they needed 3 or so coats) and the bark didn’t “shed” all over the table.  We still have them 3 years later and might use some at our wedding!!!
