Chopping wood is no easy task. It’s a full body workout that takes a lot of control and practice to perfect. For a lot of people, it might seem like something they’ll just never be good at. Plus, when you’re throwing around a heavy ax towards a big piece of wood, the risk of injury goes up substantially – especially if you don’t really know what you’re doing. Thanks to a video from one wise father, you’ll be chopping wood like a pro in no time.
In this YouTube video, a man named Brad shows a quick and simple trick to help make chopping wood seem a little less impossible. His solution is to set the log inside of a tire, which will keep the log in place when you’re hitting it with the ax. One of the most difficult and tiring parts of wood chopping is constantly trying to balance and reposition the log, so this simple change can save you time and a whole lot of grief.
After his helpful video went viral, Brad’s daughter decided to show her father just how popular his quick trick had become. She recorded his reaction, and it’s just as adorable as you’d expect.
Now it’s your turn to take Brad’s wisdom into your own hands and release your own inner lumberjack.
