HOW TO USE AN AXE?
1. Place the wood that you are going to chop in the middle a chopping block that can be the base of a tree or a sturdy table.
2. Lower yourself onto one knee in front of the chopping block. This position can balance the body when you are swinging the axe. Generally, if you are a righty, your right knee should be on the ground. If not, your left knee should be on the ground.
3. When you are holding the axe with one hand, use the other hand to steady and position the wood.
4. Bend at the elbow to swing while keeping your wrist and hand straight. Target the same spot every time when chopping until you have cut the wood into pieces.
