Wood Cutting


Part of what I have been busy with (and hence hadn't been posting much) is wood cutting. Clearing out dead beetle kill pine, cleaning the slash up, and splitting a bunch of firewood. A lot of work, but the kind of work I enjoy. Only one smashed and one split finger later, we've done about 13 cords of wood. Paying down my tiny house loan!

  1. That is a lot of wood!! Do you even have a wood stove? You must be in great shape. I always said the best gym would have a wood pile and a snow machine and you would go in and shovel snow or stack wood. Everyone would be in great shape! :)

    1. It sure is. And no, I don't have a wood stove, this was all sold to other folks plus some that I was able to give away to some good friends that are getting old enough to have a hard time cutting their own.

  2. Is that a log splitter in the background or are you doing it by hand with an axe?

    1. That is a log splitter. I really enjoy splitting by hand, but this many cords would take me a very long time, so I was glad to be able to use that.

    1. Thank you. I really don't like owing anyone money, and had no debt before buying my house. I just want to get back to that as soon as possible.

  6. One of my favorite bushcraft activities is wood cutting. I usually do a lot of wood cutting when in the backcountry. The one tool that makes the cutting easier is my wood splitting maul.

  7. Dear Ariel, your post has one thing that caught my attention! Its information is more useful than many other articles on this topic. Anyway, can you extend your supports a little more which Saw I need to use forr? That would be a great help to our website (Website Name) and most of its potential readers Spottingpro.
