[There is the right way and there is the wrong way to chop wood. Then there is my way.
I set up the stick on the chopping block, tinker with it until it stands by itself, and then I step back, poise with my axe over my head, and bring it down on the stick as hard as I can.
If I’m lucky, I split off a wedge, which lands a few steps from the block, and then the remaining stick falls off the other side. I pick up the stick and try finding its balancing point on the chopping block, and repeat. If I’m not thoroughly exhausted after this exercise, I try the procedure on another stick. What fun.
Who is this guy anyway? Can we see his wood-chopping permit?]
