Don't know if he's doing same, but we use a saw to cut a 1-4'' notch (depends on log size), space the cuts 3-4'' apart, then use an axe, adze, rogue hoe, or wedge and hammer to pop out the sections of wood between the notches. ---!---!---!---! where the dash is the top of the log, and the exclamation is the cut/notch.

ding ding ding...we have a winner. I made a 4 inch deep cut about every 4 or 5 inches, and then started to chop them out with an axe. The hard part was getting them into position with a jack and a come-along, with ropes everywhere. The short side to the drop off on the stump I did alone...with a rope around my waist and a come along and a jack all at once. Looked like a fool but it worked.:thumbsup:
