Dontcha just hate it when we're already *in* that "oldtimer" category? However, back to the wood . . . I've also started a wedge, take a good swipe @ it, and have that )*&%^*(%&*$% wood launch the wedge like a rocket, and you're looking for cover until it comes back down! Life is never dull when you work with your hands. Nahmie

Those were the days. We didn't have no sissy sledge hammer either. That thing weighed close to 20 pounds. I can't even come close to swinging it anymore.

IIRC, it was either Hickory or Red Oak! 20lb.? Sounds more like a fence maul! I *think* Uncles' was more in the 10-14lb. range.

'Round here, the old timers stand the pieces on end. Helps them keep from drying out and becoming hard to split. Seems like I tried some once and it did make a BIG difference. But I am not a pro woodsplitter.
