Here’s The Safest Way To Chop Wood With An Axe

Don't get hurt chopping wood this summer.

With the spring winds and storms, you might have some downed limbs and tress on your yard. During the clean-up process you might need to break some limbs or tree trunks into smaller pieces for easier transport or your fire pit.

Traditionally, most people are taught to split firewood by standing it vertically and trying to split it down the middle. According to CrazyRussianHacker, there is a better way.

In his video, he explains that you should lay the log you want to split on its side, on top of another log. This not only makes for a safer swing of the axe, but more efficient way to cut the wood. Watch the short instructional video to see how.
