Picture of Wood Splitter

This is a little wood splitter that I made as a gift for my dad thal owns a cabin on the mountains, its very helpfull splitting scrap wood like boards an pieces of 2X4 for his wood stove, not really an option for hard wood or wood with a lot of knots. Veary cheap to make woth just a few tools ,you can make one in 1 day or less

Step 1: Materials

I use 2x3/16 inch X40 inch long cold rolled steel for the body and 1/4X1 X30inch for the blade maybe you want to use a better steel for this part

Step 2: Toos and Process

Step 3: Welding and Mountig

Cut and drill the brackets to the wallmount and weld your pieces I use my milling to remove most part of the material of the blade and make a consistant edge in the blade but using a grinder its fine.

Make a hanle and assemble , Use a 3/8 grade 8 bolt as the pivot pint for the blade and a nylock nut
