I buy my wood split from a 72 year old guy so he can offset his retirement and stay in shape. Not sure if I could do it at his age! I keep 2 years on hand never know how bad a winter might get or what the price or avaibilty of wood next season. Makes it a lot better for burning also. Mark H.

Just picked up and split a butternut that I chunked up last winter when it came down...Maybe a cord from it with the main log still laying up the hill...Butternut is not the best firewood out there, but the price is right...

Looking to give the log to a friend...He may be able to use it as veneer for his custom cabinet making or maybe chunk it for carvers he knows...Hate to see it go to waste, but it is more than I want to split by hand...
