    My father gave me the same table for Christmas. When I am splitting horizontal it is great. My son will place logs to be split on the table and I just have to roll them onto the beam and split away. The lack of bending is a real boon as well.

    This is what I did,table goes to ground just roll wood on several then lift up.Can roll as needed and have a table as well. It is lifted by small hydrolick wench which also allowes to cast for big one's but seldom do this. I find a light duty
    hand cart workes well can move two smaller or one big one and just dump onto table. Works real well a lot better than man handling them did that when younger but 70 too old for that now.A pickroon works nice with this set-up

    My lift and table is a bit bigger, but I also deal with some pretty large rounds.

    And wedge position will change work table position.
