Splitting wood is a quality workout as well as a pretty necessary task, depending on what time of year it is and where you live. With that in mind, you’ll want to make sure you’re utilizing the most efficient wood-splitting technique possible.
If you’re simply standing wood up on its side and then cleaving it in half, you’re going to have to repeatedly stop to pick it back up and strike it again. However, if you simply place the log inside a tire, the rubber will keep all the wood standing straight up to make the splitting much, much easier. Check out the technique in action in the above video.
