good firewood, to go with the two cords I've already split---by hand---
gotta give ya some respect there.
I do all mine by hand as well. I hate using log splitters. I just got a load this weekend of nice red oak. They are taking down a large swath of trees for new power lines by me, and the wood laying there is as good as gold to me.
sorry for jacking the thread, back to the conspiracy.
Yeah you dawg you...
I'm jealous of the Red. See there we have something in common, I too can't and won't use a log splitter.. too damn slow...anyway like gold is right..Guys pay up for Oak these days. Congrats on the cabbage.
I'll tell you a funny story, you can laugh at me....lol
I felled an Ash a few years back...big ass tree--anyway I wanted to split some nice size chunks for the burner out of the stump. So I TOOK MY SAW AND CUT ABOUT HALF way through the stump about 3 inches off the ground. Take my axe and she's busting out like cake with every blow, then I get a little too close to where I had stopped the cut,( only I make a mistake and think I cut deeper and have plenty of chunk to bust off) so I snap an axe blow hard, like a hinge----the extra juice caused me to miss my mark and a chuck about the size of a baseball busts off and hits me dead center of my left shin.
It's funny now but at the time I actually thought that I'd been shot.I went down, and yes, I stayed down. Within a few seconds you could see the knot raising through my jeans.
You could throttle me dead center in the chops and it wouldn't come close to how that felt, I was freaking hobbled. I damn near shed tears and wet myself all in one motion.
I limped for a week and had a war wound for three months. Not kidding.. the bump started to fade only after about 45 days time. Damn that hurts just reliving it. Cole
