Can’t see the wood for the wood

The oak tree which was blown down last winter (here) is now almost all sawn and split for firewood.  We have kept some back for use as stools around the camp-fire and possibly for some carving.  The small branches have been hand sawn for starting the fire, the larger pieces chain-sawed and split with a hand log splitter. Lots of physical exercise.
