Log splitting 2.0

I received an email from a blog reader, Andrew, that I wanted to share with everyone.

I came across a smart idea for splitting wood better that had been posted to youtube. It involves making a girdle for the logs you are splitting with a tire. This keeps the wood on the block during chopping so you don’t have to pick up and reset the pieces after each chop. It also serves as a bumper to protect the chopping block from wearing down. This seems like it will be helpful to your readers, I know it will be helpful to me. I fast forwarded to the relevant part.
