If you’ve ever had to split your way through a pile of logs to make firewood, it can be a daunting task. The way most of us learned how to do it is fairly effective, but it’s not always efficient.

Thanks to Crazy Russian Hacker, we now know the error of our ways and our lives just got a lot easier. Instead of splitting a log that’s standing straight up, set it at an angle with another log supporting it.

Once you’re all set up just give it a hard swing at the top and it’ll split straight through — fatter logs might need a couple more swings.
