Problem here is that doesn't take into account of my being lazy.

Ain't my burden.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

I'm going to buy one tomorrow. I've been reading up about them. I bought a felling axe last year before I knew any different. I was using the sledge hammer to drive in wedges.

I am also going to buy another sledge hammer, but one with a wedge on one end as opposed to two flat ends. We've got metre long lengths of really wide tree trunks that we can eventually split into quarters after about an hour's work but the fibres inside keep them joined all together and they're too heavy to lift.

Unfortunately the head is soon going to wobble off the handle and I need to get more wedges.

It's called a maul.

That's a lotta wood.

Personally, I'd recommend fire, but that is my default solution.
Where'd you even get all this wood?

From the garden. Ivy was taking over one of the tallest trees and causing it to rot inside. It would have fallen on top of the house and caved the roof in. It was about 20 metres tall. The entire garden is on a slope on the side of a hill and the forest keep encroaching into it.

My parents own the house. They bought it to retire here but ill health meant they had to stay in England. So we've moved in and are looking after it. The garden is completely overgrown. We did start making bonfires until we learnt that they aren't allowed because one of the attractions of the area is the clean air. So I've basically covered the entire garden in a foot deep of pine branches to stop all the light getting to the grass to kill it off. We'll eventually grow fruit and veg once we figure out how to stop the deer coming in and eating everything.

We bought a wood burning stove but haven't fitted it yet. But it's a work oven with a small door so we need to split these logs into quite small chunks.

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.
