As the winter season is drawing near It is important you’ve got a reliable supply of wood for your burning stove that will keep your family warm during the winter. But, few people are enthusiastic about splitting wood. If you’re an experienced person, like myself, who would prefer doing this yourself, you can find various tools you can use that businesses that split logs use for cutting firewood.
Axes are utilized to cut firewood in halves or quarters. If a piece of wood is tightly knotted, the ax may not be able to get it through. It is for this reason that you will require a splitting maul to do the task. They weigh around 4-5 lbs and have an edge with a wedge to break up thick logs.
When the wood is too wide for an ax, or maul, it might consider using an Estwing cutting wedge. Estwing’s wedge for splitting is manufactured from hardened steel. It weighs just 5 pounds, and offers considerable splitting power when combined with split maul. This tool makes life much easier. Watch the video at the following link.
