1. Make sure log is on level ground ‐ look for cracks in log, good target for your maul.

  • Easier to cut off pieces by working around the edges rather than splitting down the middle.
  • Make sure each piece is less than 8 inches wide.

2. For logs that are difficult to split a wedge should be used.

3. Put wedge into a crack if you can find one ‐ hammer it in about an inch then go to sledge hammer.

4. Keep driving the wedge down into the log until it splits.

  • If that doesn't work use a 2nd wedge and drive it into the log the same way on the opposite side of center.
