Not really garden-related, but useful nonetheless. A simple idea that makes life simpler.
When I split firewood, I often use a splitting block. But even when I don’t, there’s usually a problem; almost every time the splitting maul comes down, I need to bend over and pick up or reposition the log.
Enter the splitting tire:
Simple. The tire contains the split wood pieces beautifully until you WANT to bend over.
My splitting block and the hole in the tire’s center happen to be sized so that the tire can just rest on top of the block. You could screw in a 2×4 frame for support around the top of the block if it’s smaller than the tire hole.
