How To Use A Hatchet ?

Imagine those days when people had to bring their own logs and cut them into shapes for utilizing in their fireplace! We are far better off than them. In present day, getting readymade logs for your fireplace is just not a matter of concern. Thanks to our ancestors who have invented things that we use comfortably now. But, what happens when although you have the wood ready for your fire place, but to your dismay the pieces are a little big in size and you need to cut them to fit in your fireplace properly?

Well, a hatchet will come quite handy in such a case. Having a hatchet in your house will prove quite useful for you in many ways. Many of you must be having one already, but alas you do not know how to use it.

Remember, hatchets are the smaller versions of axes and therefore do not attempt to cut big trees or thick logs with them. So, before actually starting to cut the wooden pieces, first find out a proper place where you can sit comfortably, especially flat with very little elevation for you to place the wood and cut it. Avoid very hard floor as using the hatchet may not only spoil the floor, but also the hatchet. While you hold a hatchet, it should feel the same way as you hold a hammer because the grip is same. The process of hitting it is same as that of a hammer, requiring same amount of swing, the rest is being taken care by the tool itself.
