It was a brisk 38 degrees yesterday morning as a couple friends and I gathered to make firewood out of a 150 year old red oak. This thing fell over on a friend’s property and she wants it gone, so we dragged a hydraulic splitter over there and started working.
Six hours and a half a fifth of Jack Daniels later, we hadn’t made so much as a dent in the pile. We figure that will take a few weeks and a whole lot of brown whisky to get everything split and hauled off to our homes.
Before anyone points out the obvious, yes I kept some large select logs out for future projects. There are four 36” diameter by 12 feet long logs that a guy is going to cut into boards with his portable sawmill. We are just trying to figure out how to roll or drag them up on the sawmill without renting a crane.
