I have said before that splitting logs for kindling with an axe is a most rewarding occupation (particularly when there is a need to hit something inanimate rather than animate). However when there are large logs to be split it is much easier to use a mechanical splitter…
Splitting firewood is no slog,
just like falling off a log!
You put the wood up to the worm,
Hold the round nice and firm,
All of a sudden a crack does sound,
and the log’s no longer round!
A few more times it’s become all logs,
Easier than in catalogues!
And all that’s left is to stack the shed,
Almost easier done than said!
