Trench for log roll front

I decided to make my own log roll to go along the front of the bed, i got some logs from the local forestry cut them down the middle length wise with a chain saw.

I then cut them into 16" lengths.

When i had made enough, the trench had concrete put in the bottom and the log rolls were then stood upright in the concrete and knocked down a bit with a lump hammer and more concrete at back and front of log rolls
