Really, you guys don't have Sassafras? It's a pretty hardy tree. Takes stain well too, unique grain. A lot of people in the area have learned to carve on it. (I am not one of them... No way can I see the horse in a block of wood)

The smell is what I love. Until you've smelled it, you can't describe it. Not woody or harsh like a nut, it's a very pleasant smell.

Yeah, I looked it up and it grows in Southern Ontario, but not on the Canadian prairies. Guess it doesn't like our weather or soil or something.

My great uncle Willard carved and whittled tool handles. Sasafrass was his second choice after Hckory for tool handles.

There is a brand called Super Splitter that works off of the flywheel piston/crank method. From what I have seen is it has some sort of cam that activates so it splits when the operator wants it to. It also seems to be a pretty fast splitter but it was out of our price range.
