    Drove 45 minutes. Cut it up, loaded it up, drove it home, and split everything that wasn't pine (bout half the truckload).

    Maybe I don't need hydraulics after all.

    Wish I had a better picture of the walnut pile, camera on the phone failed twice. Got tired of trying, so this junky half-pic will have to do.

    Nice mornings work there.

    Can't think of a better way to work up an appetite ;-)

    Looks good Danno. I can just picture you with a splitting maul in one hand and a Fiskars in the other.

    Thanks, guys. That oak is not going to be ready to burn, but I need it, so it'll be mixed with some of the pine. The walnut should season fairly quickly, and while it won't be the best, it should work.

    This pine is killing me to split. Even using the electric splitter on it is tedious. Still have several rounds in the truck to split.

    Nice work Danno, almost looks like the big guy (Quads) stopped over and lent a helping hand.

    yeah, was trying to think of a way to give the pile perspective for size and thought of Quads. Thought it would be nice to put them both in there sice I used them both.

    Danno; the maul on the left looks like it's been in the family for a few years, how many?

    LOL, looks that way doesn't it? Looked really nice last fall. I can't remember if it's been two or three years now. Looks like that because I found it sitting propped up against the shed when I went to mow this spring. Sat outside all winter long.

    I have never cut any walnut, none on my property, that is neat looking wood.

    Nice Score... Pine is a PITA with all the branches. But when its straight, it does split nice. Like the looks of the Black Walnut..

    Whats all the plywood for?? In the bottom of the Pic? Cant help but think we might be building something?? Maybe a Wood Shed.. Thats a lot of wood for a shed. So its gonna be a "BIG SHED".. LOL

    It's the siding for the shed I'm building, but not a wood shed.
