    Someone suggested a local lumber company to me in case we need good dry firewood. Their firewood webpage shows their machine which saws and then splits the wood just like the fuzzy pumper barber shop pumps playdoh!! I just thought it was cool to watch.

    Try this one out.
    I used one of these for a while. A different style (shear vs. saw) and loading mechanism.
    They have some pros and cons, but definitely make processing without a lot of extra equipment a possibility.

    All things considered the Woodbine machines are not that expensive. They have some other cool videos on their site.

    Thanks for the input on the prices, I thought that sounded OK, considering that it is probably good dry stuff and they probably also know what an actual cord is. The fact that they separate the oak out and charge more for it - is that unusual?
    Don't know if we will need any wood but probably will. We had a really big maple taken down yesterday, but it won't be good for at least a year I guess. It was way more solid than I thought it would be, which made me sad about taking it down.

    Turns out the guys who cut our tree are listed as "partners" on that lumber mill website, so I guess they typically provide the wood to them. Guess that's why he kept trying to tell me we wouldn't want the big trunk (I persisted that we did want it.) Dang it's a lot of wood.
