    Impressive. That chain thing he puts around the logs is a great idea, holding all the chopped pieces together. Usually I just let 'em fall to the ground and pick them up when I'm done lol.

    That definitely took some ingenuity and a lot of practice. He's using a Fiskars brand axe.

    definately, I saw another video of a guy using a tire nailed to the top of his chopping round, put the rounds inside his tire, and the tire kept the wood from slinging out too, either way, slick method

    Something else to keep in mind is by the looks of the snow on the ground it's pretty cold where he's at, frozen wood splits easier.
    None the less good time saving trick.

    Good job, but when you cut firewood that thin it burns too fast.
    You're driving is WAY more offensive than my swearing, assjack!!!

    I grew up spliting 10-15 logging cords of Maple/black ash and burch. BLack ash splits very easly. and that looked like a straight piece of birch that is frozen.. Super easy, not putting him down, and that small of wood when it is birch creates alot of heat and birch burns fast any way... I stil never got to play with anything like the chain and bungy cord like he does! I had to use a 10lb splitting maul. ahhh the memories and the knowledge that i dont need to do that anymore HAH!
