Thx GaryL. I do have a question as stupid as it may sound, but then no question is a dumb one I’ve been told! :)

If a hickory shaft has to be finished at 48” to turn and finalize length at 44” how would it get split by hand?

Is this the same as splitting on a pneumatic rail splitter? Better still for mass production, could the hickory not be split with a band saw to 1” X 1” X 48” billets while ensuring the wood is split (cut) to preserve grain directional cut?

I think I said that correctly? Yes-No?
