I posted 3 photos in the Photo Gallery for you.
Trick is to have a decent fence to guide the saw with. Mine is a rip of 3/4" plywood but you could use whatever is handy. I screw the fence to the log in several places. Have found that fine thread drywall screws 2" long work best and don't snap off like the coarse thread screws do. Just back the screws off to take the fence off. Flip the cant over and strike a line with your caulkbox and screw the fence back on.

Good luck, and let us know how your project is coming along.

what is the width of the kerf on that saw blade? looks like it does a fairly good job of milling.

The only real diffence between regular chains and that rip chain is the set on the teeth. The chain is 3/8 x 72 link. Can't cross cut with it or you get dangerous kickback. Best trick I've learned is to keep the kerf wedged if you are in knarly grain wood.
