Don't just give up! Marine environments have been drilling through piers and things for ages. I just don't think putting a handle on one side can work well.

No give up here! But it's looking like these proposed solutions could be $10-$20 per log and I may have up to 10 logs so I just want to make sure this is something I see as a long term solution before I shell out all the money on materials. Or I may just go with the simplest solution and find a very long lag bolt or eye lag and just use those as handles drilled into the log itself.

In order for the bark to stay on the tree,it must be cut down in the fall or better yet winter,when this occurs the bark becomes a permanent part of the tree

Carve/shave a small flat spot on the side of the logs.
