    Well, given that you are so organised and on top of your wood, you could always come and help me split! ;lol ::-) :eek:

    I hope your Gum splits easier than the Sweetgum we have here, which has interlocking grain is an SOB to split. 'Split' isn't really the right word; It more tears and shreds. <>
