Log splitters and other cool log stuff

Man and his log: the relationship goes back a long way, and began perhaps with the spark that first made fire.

Woodworkers and lumberjacks may be few and far between these days, but the bond between man and log is still strong, as this cool log stuff shows.

Although the axe is a seriously macho tool, it’s no match for its powerful descendant, the log splitter.

It will get the job done in no time and saves you from the perils of manual labour: no bad backs, no impromptu amputations and no pneumonia / man-flu from being out in the cold for hours on end!

Shooting down a log flume may not strike most people as being a particularly romantic event. But for Lawrence Key, it was the most nerve-racking ride of his life, as he took the opportunity to propose to his girlfriend of five years.

She was completely unaware until she received her souvenir photograph at the end of the ride, proving that falling in love really can be a rollercoaster! [Source: Mercury]
