I don't have a building for my mill, mostly because the town zoning rulers get all nervous when you say sawmill. State law exempts portable mills without buildings from regulations. I have however turned logs in a similar manner using my tractor loader to provide the lift. I find using a chain with a roll hitch works well.

That takes all the fun out of grunting and sweating and then trying to catch the dang thing from falling off the rack when the stops decide to fall just about the time the log turns.
