Re: Additional Wood Store

Timber splits most easily when still green, it will be harder work if it has dried out. Large or awkward shapes are best split using 'log wedges' and a maul or sledge hammer, rather than a splitting maul. Experience tells me to have at least 3 wedges to avoid getting one stuck. I have always used traditional wedges, rather than the star pointed 'log grenade'.

However the wedges are now only a back up to a mechanical splitter. I use a small hy-crack (www.hydrocut.co.uk) which will split a 15" long log of any diameter that I can lift. The wedges are kept for those bits too heavy to lift.
