A log on a workbench split in two with several wedges

The split log (read post for exciting story!)

In my last post about getting wood ready for winter (albeit a bit late in the year) I mentioned I hadn’t got the wood fully chopped up. I now have and wanted to show off this photo I took after successfully splitting a log using wedges I’d cut from the two smaller logs with a survival knife. I did this because my saw was too small to cut through the entire diameter of the log (I still have a few logs left over I havent cut up but the wood pile is full so they can wait until later – I know sort of the opposite of what I said in my last post).

Yup that was it, just showing off…..
