Just as the old saying goes, “If you’re going to chop wood, you might as well do it right.” This is how I feel about chopping wood, but I’d also just like to tell you that I’m not the only one. If you’re going to get a wood-chopping job done right, you might as well be ready for the best.
Ive already talked about the importance of getting a good quality axe. Thats why the best wood-chopping jobs are done with a quality axe. Im assuming that the same is true of wood-chopping. If you dont have a good quality axe, you might as well just chop your own wood.
What do you mean by “a quality axe”? I mean something that’s been in the hardware business for a long time.
The best wood-chopping jobs i have seen are done by experienced wood-chopping craftsmen who have had the proper training. The best wood-chopping jobs are done with the proper tools and a lot of time. A cheap axe of the wrong quality, or the wrong length of wood, can ruin the whole thing. Also, if you have a lot of wood to chop, you might as well chop it small.
The axe is the tool of choice for wood-chopping craftsmen. Of course, the axe is the tool of choice for the best wood-chopping jobs. But there is a fine line between an “awesome” axe and a “screw up” axe.
As it turns out, axe-choppers are the people who make the best wood-chopping jobs. And they have great tools. And they’re the least likely to screw up. So if you want to make sure your wood-chopping job is as good as it can be, stick to the best axe, and don’t screw up. Here’s a list of the other tools that wood-chopping craftsmen use.
The best axe is a very big, heavy axe that isnt cheap. The best screw-up axe is one that works but isnt really a good axe. Its one that screws up a lot, but it makes it easier to chop wood. And the best wood-chopping tool is a hammer.
The “best” is a huge red flag to most woodworkers. I’m sure the average woodcutter reading this list is going to think, “well, I know what a hammer is, so I know what I’m doing.” And they would be right. A hammer is not a good wood-chopping tool. The problems with hammers are that they aren’t really a good tool.
There are a lot of things that can help you cut through to the end of a tree, so just try some wood-chopping. A quick time-tape or a few seconds of time-tape can make it work, or a few seconds of time-tape can make it do more damage than a hammer.
If you are trying to chop an object that is too thick, try to cut two sides at the same time.
