I just bought one of those Fiskars splitting axes; they are amazing! I'd been using a single bit axe when I felt like splitting by hand, but it was WORK. It's unbelievable how much easier it is with this thing! I also picked up a couple of worn out tires to use pretty much like the bungee & chain in the video. And all these years I've had to stand the round back up, over & over...

I was just blown away by the ingenious use of that bungee.

I used to split by hand. I did a side job for a guy awhile back and he paid me with a hydrolic splitter.

When I was in Dry Creek I tried to burn 3 year old wood. You are way in front & much better off burning well seasoned wood. I'm not quite as far ahead as you yet but I'm working on it.

Fiskars splitting axes are among the best. When I split for myself I used this maul.

You guys are spoiled with your firewood cutting, a trailer load, 6 cords, lol. Here in the Northwoods I buy a semi truck load of hardwood pulp and cut it up, this is the first year I have bought a load for this house so I am waiting to see how long it will last, the way this winter is going for us it will hopefully last me more than 2 years. Here guys sell by the face cord which is 4'x8'x16" or the full cord also called logger cord which is 4'x4'x100", one logger cord comes out to about 2.5 face cords if you are lucky.

Guess I am spoiled. The logs are free & most the time I'm in the truck & getting paid to dump them. If we cut on my side of town the logs are just a waste product for the boss as he doesn't want to haul them to his lot.
