I got a new toy a few months ago, figured I would cut, split my own firewood to save money. The logs I get arent seasoned well, but it only takes a few months to season once they are split.
This is the new toy
First delivery of wood, After I cut it
Break time, enjoy the view
Split pile #1 of this delivery
Of course I failed to take a picture of the second pile after it was all split.
Part #2, Build wood racks. Part of the second pile is in this shot. This part of my yard used to be trees and a dog run from a previous owner, I started clearing this 3 years ago and this is the first year I can use it for the firewood!
Stacking the wood:
Part #3, build a base to the tree for another row and stack
The wood racks and wood stacking was done in 2 days (thank god it went quick) I still have 3/4 of pile #1 to stack and another load already cut waiting to be split. More wood racks to come along with more splitting and stacking!
They weren't really tongs. Handle with long claws. They fell outta the truck one weekend driving back to town. Went a ways out a dirt road. Didn't notice they were gone till the next weekend. Went back and couldn't find them.
