    I could see a use for that by the hearth.

    Using it would keep me warm until the stove started heating the place.

    I really liked the part when he brought out the chainsaw. Pretty sure a regular hand-powered cross-cut saw would've cut faster!

    At the rate he's going. Gonna take him a year to make kindling! Hope he's just a pleasure burner?

    I would have had that thing in the garbage faster than a prom dress hitting the floor.

    As a woman, I'm laughing at this ;lol
    I cried laughing at that chainsaw! I heard him say the battery was in the house, but I didn't realize he was talking about the saw. i will no longer be ashamed of my little Stihl Mini boss! My electric knife I carve roasts with would have been faster. He was wearing goggles though, safety first (since common sense seems to have skipped over him)

    But he HAS a sledge hammer, hitting it against the wedge was the wrong way to get the log out but he tried. I would have smashed that contraption with the hammer but I'm not a patient person ;)

    I liked how he "cut it out" by removing cutting off random pieces that were in no way causing the jam. Yeah...that'll help.

    The chainsaw was priceless....and why the heck would anyone split a 4" round...it's basically already kindling?

    Splitting wood while wearing sneakers, shorts, and short sleeve shirt! At least he did put on protective eyewear. That thing he is using will kill his knees. I can't imagine trying to split more than 2 or 3 pieces at any one time. We used to rent a rent a splitter and run 5 cord through in one day.

    Let's see....where do I begin? The bird legs with glorified slippers on? The fisher price chainsaw? The black ankle socks? Him choking up on the sledge like a 7 year old girl? The harbor freight contraption itself? The cross cut sawing motion? Oh wait.....the "good reviews".....cant forget that one. My money says the goggles were to protect his eyes for when that thing detonates and metal flying all thru the garage. Oh hell, I'm off to youtube to see if this guy has any felling vids I can watch. ;lol

    The good news here is that the chain wasn't sharp enough to hurt his bare legs. The bad news is, that's 7 min of my life I'll never get back. Wonder what he burns in, a coffee can? My pit bull can make toothpicks out of that little round in less than 2 minutes. That was pretty danged funny, thanks. A C

    Man I was expecting something... maybe a bloody limb.... to go flying at some point. That was just silly.

    I think that plastic chainsaw must have plastic teeth also how slow it was cutting _g
