    Not me. I choose to do the wood working in cooler weather; winter and spring.

    In the following order:

    Bucking, splitting, stacking, drinking, grilling, drinking, drinking, etc...

    But seriously, I'm picking up a splitter for the weekend from my local saw shop and getting to work on the huge scrounge pile that I've been hoarding since January. I split two cords with nothing more than an 8lb maul, a sledge, and two wedges, but I just didn't have the time to devote to it day after day. I'm not really sure how much wood I even have at this point-guess I'll know after this weekend.

    I have about a cord of poplar to split and a couple cords of hardwood. I'd like to get it finished up this weekend. I need to get this done and out of the way so I can bring more wood home. :)

    Picking up a rental splitter this afternoon. $51 for the whole weekend and have to drop it back off Tuesday morning. Gonna split some pine, box elder, maple, etc. Hopefully have about 1.5 cords ready to stack from what I already have. Got a permit to cut locally so aim is to get another 2.5 cords bucked and sitting ready for splitter.

    :)

    Just wanted to thank all for their past military service and make this country what it is today.
    As much as we might complain about how things are right now, there is no other place I would rather be!

    I've split two cords so far and probably another two or three cords still in rounds to be split. I'll be splitting for awhile still. Although I get kinda sad when there is nothing left to split. Splitting is a good workout for me and I enjoy the solitude it provides - as nobody seems to want to help me!

    I work all weekend so no wood work for me. I do plan to do some cutting and splitting next week. I just got cutting rights to a massive amount of downed trees and really want to see what is there.

    God bless our troops past and present who protect our freedom and way of life!

    They're small enough to buck with a 16 inch bar and small enough to lift. In my book they are small.
