  1. This is actually really cool. I’ve been looking for a project to hone my welding skills on, and my parents (and I when I’m around) cut and split 1.5 truckloads of wood every year with a chainsaw and a maul. While splitting a log with a maul is extremely satisfying, this would probably save them a lot of work.
