As we age certain parts of our body are more vulnerable to repetitive tasks. Our backs seem to be most susceptible to the strains of lifting and twisting, especially if we do it for hours on end.
Yesterday I added a table to our log splitting setup, nothing fancy just some plywood left over from construction. This means no more bending over to lift the split wood off the ground, now we just reach over at waist height to get the wood. Our backs are so much happier.
So this is our current setup which I'm quiet happy with. The logs are on the far left of the picture above. I use the bucket to bring them to the log-splitter. Once split they are tossed on the table ready to be stacked in the crib. This is a much more efficient system and now that it's in place future logs will be so much easier to deal with.
Off to Maynooth shortly. Have a wonderful day.
