I did Mike, it will take a while with an Axe and a maul though.

The guy did show me how to properly split using it last night.

Keep in mind if you are splinting it by hand the wood splits so much easier when it's green. Keep ya out of trouble for a while.

When I had my wood stove, I liked to split it during the winter when it was frozen.

Hi Shane

I think it splits alot easier when it's green or frozen. We use hyd. to split now and that still hard on my old body. We started burning wood in the house 32 years ago only because that all we had. We have a gas furnace now but I still burn wood and use the gas as a backup if we are going out of town.

He He Still splits hard by hand if it's wet or dry. When I was younger I didn't mind it so much but now that I'm older I have a tractor with a loader and a hyd splitter and I hate it. I have 22 cord put up for next winter and dry oak every where I look in the woods. May have to sell some of it this fall.
