Is there anything more comforting than a roaring fire on a cold winter’s day? From the heat it generates to the wonderful aroma, nothing says “home for the holidays” quite like it.

If you really want to get that fire going, of course, you need firewood. While wood itself is easy enough to procure, splitting those logs is time-consuming, backbreaking work.

Luckily, this man has a simple trick that will save you loads of time and get you by your fireplace faster! Just watch how easy he makes this usually grueling task by using a very simple hack.

Chances are that you’re looking for a way to beat the cold and stay warm in your home this winter. And what better than by making a cozy fire in your fireplace? Using this man’s simple wood-chopping hack, you’ll have enough firewood to last a lifetime…


You’re going to start by gathering up two old car tires. You don’t have to worry about them being in particularly good shape, either. Now, stack those on top of each other and tie them together on both sides using a thick string.


Now, you’re going to grab a thick log from your pile. Be sure that it’s cut to the length that fits inside of your fireplace without a hassle. Pretty soon, you’ll be enjoying nights by the fire thanks to this foolproof chopping hack! Next…


…Take that log and put it right into the tire holes. You’re going to notice that it should fit rather snug; this is how it’s supposed to be. The tire is going to do all of the stabilizing that typically makes chopping wood so difficult.


Then, it’s time to grab your axe, but make sure it’s sharp enough to get the job done. Once you realize how easy it is to use this trick, you’ll be able to save yourself a ton of time and frustration. Watch how easy it is for him to chop it right up!

Not only does this method get the job done in half the time, but it also seems safer than the alternative! Would you try this trick?
