In this video I'll show you how to split wood with a maul while wearing a moose hat.
<p>power is nothing without control. Funny and usefull ;)</p>
<p>This is a way to split wood that WILL get you sore.</p><p>I recommend using a similar technique; and never use a maul unless you plan on hitting it with a sledge hammer.</p><p>Instead use a regular axe; I will display how to whenever I can.</p>
<ol> <li> Thanks for the captions, I can understand wrote English but not spoken. <li> Thanks for the fun, I laughed a lot imagining myself trying to split these logs. Brute force only, don't work. <li> Thanks for that beautilful landscape. </ol>
Thank you Osvaldo. It takes a good amount of time to write out the captions so I am glad to know that you found it useful. I have more How-To videos on my BigNate84 YouTube channel that all include captions. I'm glad you enjoyed the landscape and got a laugh out of the video. It was filmed in New Hampshire. Take care!
Nice, but I prefer this guy's method... <br>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCJADv2shNE
Thats great! I've seen that video before. He does a good job.
It's definitely a different approach (splitting slabs off of the sides of the round) with a specialized tool. Here is a link to the inventor's site--http://www.vipukirves.fi/english/description.htm. It looks like a super efficient way to split firewood.
Thanks Casey. I wonder if its the design of the new and improved tool that makes the difference or the type of wood and amount of time it was left to season? Probably a combination of both. In the video above we were using freshly cut pine (not recommended) we should have waited a season or two so the wood could dry out and split more easily. I like the efficiency of the tire method used in the link you attached.
did you say step 3 .. grip the maul Moosely?
If I was a little more clever I would have totally said that, haha.
5 stars for moose hats! Excellent!
haha thanks Jessy. Everything is more fun with a moose hat.
