Best Homemade Wood Processor

A wood processor is a piece of equipment that combines a log splitter and log cutter. The operator places the log onto the upper frame, and pushes it against a steel stop set at a specified length (in this case 22″) to make the cutting easy. The log is then split in half by a hydraulic ram. The operator then rotates and resets the split half, yielding quarters of the log.
