Got this genius tip from Permaculture Magazine this month – use an old tyre to hold logs you are splitting. It stops them flying off in different directions and meaning loads of bending down and gathering them up again to stack, plus is supports those awkward ones that never stand up easily to be hit with the axe. This is an old quad bike tyre, once I’ve got some bigger logs to stand it on I’m going to try with a car tyre.
