Safer Kindling Chopping

Simple Solution:

Cutting kindling with an axe can be dangerous because you have to hold the board or log with one hand while chopping it with the other. Here’s a much safer solution: Take a 12- to 16-in.-long 1×2, or similar narrow board, and drive a drywall screw through one end. Next, set the screw point onto the top of the board or log you plan to chop and tap the screw head with the flat end of the axe, just to drive in the screw point a little bit. Now, you can safely chop it.
