Believe you Can and your half way there. For years I split wood using a 6 lb wedged maul and a 6 lb sledge hammer with a 30″ handle. I wrapped the handle with fiction tape I would not lose it in a swing.
For some reason I believed that I just couldn’t build my own Log Splitter until the day I had enough. That was the day I decided to look for plans or something to help me figure this out.
I didn’t find very much. Because I was a Union Iron-worker, I had the fabrication and welding down pat. I just needed a little direction.
