No matter how long you’ve been cutting wood, there’s always a new and improved way to do things. We think we’ve found the easiest in this simple innovation by a German outdoorsman. 

Using a chain and elastic bungey around the log, when the ax comes down on each blow the pieces stay in place. This eliminates that time consuming and back-straining process of picking up the pieces and re-stacking them on the block before each strike. 

With this method, you’ll shave your chopping time in half and still get plenty of exercise.
