How to Split Logs

Linked Article

One thing I'm having to learn before my oven done is managing the wood to be able to build a fire. I'm no boy scout, so I have little experience with axes and the like.

I have some "practice wood" and I bought an axe at Lowe's. The axe blade keeps getting stuck in the log (as the linked article implies), so maybe I also need a "maul" for splitting those logs.

At least I'll get exercise chopping wood, eh?

I still have to find a good source for my pizza oven wood. The experts say Apple wood is good for wood burning ovens.

Here's a thread on the Forno Bravo message board on splitting logs.

Wish me luck not chopping my foot accidentally. I should find some steel toed shoes, eh?
