A Good Splitting Wood

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI  think to myself, “I am a skilled woodworker, knowledgable of the nature of wood and how it will react, and I can judge the grain and the growth patterns and start the split with expert placement of the splitting wedge, keeping continually a keen eye on the split as it progresses, easing the wood fibers apart,OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAholding a line there in the center of the pith for an excellent split”. In fact the wood known locally as Robinia is just a good wood for splitting, much like sweet chestnut and so if there is any credit I can claim it is in getting a wood that will not give me a whole lot of hassle.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnd one final whack with a good old Swedish/Norwegian axe.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
