  • Look at this tree log this guy is giving away for FREE in New Jersey, if yo

    IF YOU STEAL THIS AWAY FROM ME I WILL NOT BE HAPPY WITH YOU.

    Hand Peeled Tree Log -about 13" diameter

    How many pounds would you say this log is?

    My dream is to lift it over my head.

    If you don't hear from me again maybe this guy in Allendale killed me and hand peeled me too, like he did with the log.

      It's beautiful! Lucky you! Ummm, but do let someone else know where you're going! I have been known to wave to imaginary people in my car when some one has been creepy-scary.

        I'll probably take an L ride and roll with a few heads to scoop it.

              Yeah, the other logs are a dime a dozen around here (heck there are quite a few in my back yard) but that peeled one is a work of art. It's gorgeous. And if you can lift that you must be superman!

                How heavy do you think it is??

                  Here's what I did. I brought my cheap-o scales down into my garage where I have a smaller log hanging around while I figure out what to do with it. It looks to be slightly shorter and narrower than the beauty you're getting. My log only weighs 55 lbs. But it's very, very dry and probably at least 30% smaller, at a guess. The problem will be picking it up and lifting it without hurting your back. Once you get it up in the air, I'm sure you can lift it above your head... if you're experienced. The awkward shape and hand-hold is what's working against you.

                    I would make cut-outs and install handles, like in World's Strongest Man.

                    From what you're telling me, I put it between 100-150 lbs. How do you feel about that estimate?

                      I think it's no more than 100... maybe 80. But I could be wrong. If you're gonna put in handles it'll be GREAT. Did he reply back that it's yours? God I love Craigslist! I got a rebounder, pull up bar (which I'm trying to figure out), a leaf & branch shredder, and a pressure washer, to name just a few things... and only the rebounder cost me anything ($20). My heart was broken when I missed out on a beautiful snake with aquarium & heater by 20 minutes.

                        Great stuff! I've been thinking about rigging up handles on a log to do deadlifts...not sure of the geometry, but I'd rather lift garden furniture (log bench!) than "weights". Now I know where to look--thanks

                            Well it depends on what type of wood it is, how long has it been drying. My quess would be between 250 to 350 lbs.
                            You are what you eat, so only eat the best!

                              OH SHIT. I'll never lift that over my head.
