A while back, me and my dad made a log splitter. Making a log splitter isn’t too challenging, all the parts required are readily available and the design is pretty simple. But we made this one as a bit of a ‘freecycle’ project by getting as many of the parts from a scrapyard and using materials we already had. So if you think it looks like garbage, that’s because it kinda is. In the end, the only parts we bought were the hydraulic valve, hoses, and a few fittings. Fortunately all the parts we scrounged worked and are still working today.
