How to chop wood without messing around
 
How to chop wood without messing around. [VIDEO]

If you can't see the video, somebody sets up a piece of a tree limb on a stump, wrapped around with a chain and a bungee. When he chops with a maul, it all stays together rather than flying all over the place, so he can just go around and around, taking out a chunk at a time. The end result is a bunch of nice, well-split pieces very quickly.

Too cool! I have seen people place pieces of wood into an old tire and split away. Holds it all in very well.

I like this way better. Less weight and you can store it easier when not in use.

Thanks, Rocko.

Fantastic. I wish i knew any invention of this kind for compact thin branches from pruning and convert it in kind of log. I could keep the olimpic fire oven forever lighting. Too sad we have to burn it every year in country burners and heat nothing.
