Sometimes an axe and a well-worn pair of leather gloves

Most often when a tree needs felling or a branch trimmed, I'll reach for my chainsaw. It makes easy work out of hard.

But there are those times when nostalgia comes calling and I reach for my comfortable leather gloves and an axe. Also, when it comes to splitting wood for campfires or the fireplace, I'll typically reach for the axe. I haven't ever used a maul or a dedicated motorized log splitter. My axe has always done the work just fine.

I caught the two of them relaxing on a small fallen branch and thought it looked like a good opportunity for a photo.

Dedicated motorized log splitter? I think I'd take a pass on that one.

Nice photo; it's making me look forward to getting my new axe a little more! :tu:

TRUST me, a log splitter would be a welcomed member to our family.
