    I hope he changes his spot regularly or he is going to end up with crop circles wore into his lawn. Also wonder how many straps he has cut.

    That is the form I use for killing a rabid beaver, not splitting wood. Jeesh.

    I wonder how long it takes him to split up a cord??

    LOL its not about speed or efficacy for me. I burn for many reasons, but splitting 30 min every other day reduces the time I need to spend lifting weights in the basement, so I wake up, make coffee, Get dressed, throw on boots, grab coffee and split for 20-30 min in the morning. Gets me going and I can get a couple of loads of wood CSS. Never get over whelmed by what I have to split yet, or tired from a long day splitting.

    Man, a whole lot of dancing and prancing around, what a workout! I prefer the methodical low effort approach.......... let my tool do the work! I still need to set up a nice tire though!

    No joke. Everyone else would have had that wood split, stacked and sitting on the couch sucking down a cold beer while he's still tweeking out on that log !!!

    An old bull and a young bull are standing on a hillside looking down at a herd of cows.

    The young bull says: "Let's run down and have one of those cows!"

    The old bull says: "Let's walk down and have them all..."

    Slow down sonny - there's more than one log to split!

    Good technique, if you want a workout and only do one round a day

    Seems a little dangerous for a 'survival' themed site, when a split toe might cost you more than an embarrassing ride to the hospital.
