How do you chop your firewood down to the Karubecue C60 size brick or redbull can size? What kind of Axe is best? I have the recommended Black and Decker Alligator Loppers. But I need input on how to chop this Red Oak Firewood I have, I'd like to split with an axe these already split pieces of red oak, as seen in the stack picture, so that they can all be ready for the Black and Decker Alligator Lopper . I purchased a 8 Lb Husky Splitting Maul but it barely puts a ding in the red oak let alone even get close to splitting it. I mostly use the alligator lopper and sometimes I must use a larger electric chainsaw for the larger pieces of red oak. If I can only find an Axe or method to split the pieces of red oak then they would be all easily processed by the alligator lopper. Any suggestions?
