I'm about to purchase a CAD program to assist my woodworking projects. I'm computer literate but I haven't used any of these programs for furniture design. Can you give me some suggestions for a hobby woodworker...?
Powered splitters don't get tired, but still have to be loaded. I would consider one that can work in vertical mode, so larger rounds can be rolled into position without the need to lift.
IMO, they won't gain you much in speed over a good splitting axe, unless you split a lot of difficult species.
