Not a whole lot but I'm definitely in gear to get as much done as I can. Started on some maple, cherry, hawthorn, and ash. :thumbsup:










Got a bunch more pallets too.




Got a lot more where the wood and pallets came from as well!!

Ive been cuttin and splitting here too for next year. I have always split my wood by hand also for my own use as well as selling it to others in the fall. I kinda enjoy it. Gets the blood pumping.:) I like the looks of that STIHL maul. But i haven't had good luck with wooden handles.....

It's the original handle but the wood of the handle below the head has a couple gouges out of it but it's overall in really good shape. Then again it should be rather robust for the price of $90. I've prolly split well over 50 face cords with it so far and it'll be a long time before I need to replace it (I hope).


And I love splitting by hand too. Not as productive as a splitter with a lift tray and a 6 wedge but it's great exercise and it can be quite relaxing. Definitely feels accomplishing! I don't mind the extra work it takes to split wood by hand but that's cuz I'm only 30. I may change my tune when I'm 50 but we'll see.... :)

It's the Stihl PA80 splitting maul. It's a badass maul - worth every penny as far as I'm concerned. Hands down it's the best maul I've ever used. :yup:

That IS a big bastard, isn't it ! Have you tried the mechanical maul with the little fingers that spread the log open when hit ? A friend had one and I was fairly impressed with it on dry wood, never tried on anything green though.

Any other thoughts on these ? I'll be getting one soon and want some input, thanks !

Doing good Norm. Spend the week in Maine last week with my wife and mother. T'was a nice trip, glad my mom got out of the house for a week. She and my dad had plans to go up there sometime this year but obviously that can't happen now. Glad she made it up though, she needed a small break from all the craziness from last year......
