As a woodworker I can say that Scott's hair analogy for how wood grain works is on point. I've used the same comparison myself so props to the man for a really good "science with Gaunson"
MyRegardsToTheDodo Hace 2 meses
Wood also gets more brittle while drying out (and the stump looked a bit rotten), that's why the stump exploded. When you store wood it dries out, which means it loses mass. The inside of the wood gets smaller, which means the grain can tear itself apart, leaving cracks inside the wood. That's why you only use dry wood for building materials and why it's a pain in the a** to store larger pieces of wood for wood carvings.

Maybe. But, if you take a green twig, and a dry twig, the dry will snap, and the green tends to hold on to its fibers. I think a rematch is in order with fresh wood.

Amazing video as always! As referring to the strength of wood, as it becomes more and more dry, it gets harder and therefore, brittle . It's more prone to split or explode. Freshly cut hardwood or soft wood will have more elasticity so it resists force of impact a little better than dried wood.

True for carpentry but when it comes to cutting down a tree you can only cut against the grain. Thus making Scott's explanation completely moot.

@fruitnut123 not moot at all, he perfectly explains why it’s easier to split wood when you work with the grain as opposed to against it. They’re not chopping down trees, they’re splitting wood.
Warren_M_28703 Hace 2 meses
@Lrgload Exactly! The force from the axe would be the same as the force from a wood splitter. And as we see against the grain, it cuts like scissors. If it cut like a chainsaw falling a tree, there would be 2 solid pieces instead of many.

Wood, at least in Sweden, is more flexible when it’s fresh and can kind of bend too but when it’s dry it can break easier when it bends, so I think it’s a little bit stronger when it’s freshly cut. Great video like allways, love it!! Props to Jack, amazing work!!

I think wood does get stronger as it gets dryer but only to an extent. If you’ve dealt with wet wood before you would know it starts to get almost squishy and eventually starts to rot but at the same time when wood gets too dry it becomes very brittle so the optimal moisture I would say would be almost completely dry with a little moisture left. Basically a log that is freshly cut from a tree that’s had a few hours to dry is what I would guess would be the strongest

Wood gets more brittle the dryer it gets. Also, cutting with the grain yields clean cuts, against the grain is both harder and yields obliterations. Well done Scott!
AngryGinger Hace 2 meses
Yeah, I was going to say it depends on what they mean by "stronger". It will get harder, so the surface will be tougher when it comes to scratches and dings, but the "glue" (I forget what it's really called) that holds the grain together dries out and becomes more brittle.

problem with pyramids of pressurized vessels is the pressure will likely set off the bottom before the blade even gets close.

Hardwood gets harder as it dries but more brittle. Would be interesting to see this experiment done with a freshly cut log, the cross grain cut might actually stop it because the moisture should give it more tensile strength.

Wood definitely is more plyable when it's green. And the reason wood is easier to split when green is because it is about 40% water, the fibres are more spread out to accommodate the moisture. As it dries they tighten thus it becomes harder to force them apart. I'd imagine that even a green log would explode if you hit it across the grain. Maybe not into such smaller pieces like the dry one did. Knotted wood will do the same with a hydraulic splitter as your essentially splitting with and against the grain at once.
Remote Gold Prospecting
You may have just invented the ultimate block splitter when that block exploded. Green timber is way more stronger to split, with the water content filling up the pores and giving the fibres flexibility. Love it. Cheers 🍻

Kimo Cureton

Hell yeah mates. Nice vid, but I think you should take the curvature of the blade into consideration when making your stacks of... stuff. Since it's not a straight blade, the objects closest to the two corners of the blade will have more time to maneuver out of place, or have an incomplete cut, as appossed to the center of the blade. A lot of your objects like the three tires, tin buckets, and stack of wooden stumps would've gotten completely cooked with a straight blade since the point of contact between all the objects and the blade would be more even. The only thing though is you would have to take into account of the height of your pivot point to calculate the correct angle of your straight blade in order for the blade to lay flush with the ground. Although the above may be true, a curved blade is still best for single object cutting, since all of the force right before impact will be directed at the center of the blade then dispersed for an easy cut. OOOHH, and about the dry wood being stronger thing Scott brought up... duh, I mean it's used to make whole structures heavier than that axe😂. But, when it comes to cutting, I wanna say that wet wood would be harder to cut since the wood is softer and more susceptable to changing shape rather than splitting or chipping. Like when round tables are being made, the piece of wood used for the sides are actually steamed then bent by a roller or something to make the curved shape. Just sayin' 😅
Fathead Hace 2 meses
I'd be interested to see the "against the grain" cut with a much longer log---just to see how far the "explosion" travels up the log on either side.
Tynan Patrick
Tynan Patrick Hace 2 meses
wood gets harder as it dries, but that also means it is more brittle. think about smaller sticks. a dried out one is likely to just snap when bent, whereas a wet one will bend much more. by the same token, the lack of moisture makes the fibers more rigid and firm, meaning the wood is harder.

As a lumberjack, I can tell you wood is much easier to split when it’s dry, wet logs take a lot more force to break as they absorb the impact more
Caleb Dick
Caleb Dick Hace 2 meses
Yes. Wood will get harder as it drys out, especially with woods like jarrah and iron bark. However hard woods (as opposed to soft woods, like pines etc. it has nothing to do with the actual hardness of the wood itself) will become quite brittle as they dry, particularly close to the roots, eg, the stump, or near a branch where the grain becomes very wavy and curly. This is why it exploded, because the grain is not uniform in direction and has no support from the “rest” of the log, sometimes curling almost 90 degrees, so that you would be splitting between grains at that point. If you were to obtain a pine or non hollow gum (spotted gum) log about 1.5 metres or longer and 500mm thick, that axe shouldn’t be able to cut it, so long as it’s not green (so been drying for at least five years) and not from near the base of the tree or containing burl or branch defects. In other words, a prime piece of timber probably worth in excess of $3000 😂.

Precisely what I wanted to say ! Hard yes, but brittle. Just like tempered glass, stone, hardened steel... (but without fibers) (And these logs even seem rotten)

If the burl was big enough the piece would be worth a ton of money. There are burl poachers who remove burl for the money. Which is a shame. I do know some wood turners who would pay a pretty penny for a good sized burl

Use a strap to hold the cans together to get a better chop with more distruction. Or make a frame that sits on both sides of ax so big items can be chopped and not fall over. And wood gets dry it becomes more brittle. Green logs are stronger.
Cody Mulcahy
Cody Mulcahy Hace 2 meses
As timber dries the fibres have far more plastic potential energy, instead of elastic potential energy. Which means as it dries the bonds between the fibres are more brittle. That’s why it’s easier to split dry wood than fresh cut stumps. And also why snapping sticks you’ve just cut off a tree is far more difficult than older sticks that have dried out, because moisture makes the fibres far more elastic. When the moisture content is higher its ability to stretch and retract is significantly better. But with all the concentrated force that axe will producing I’m still not sure if it could hold up.

To answer the question about wood strength: Yes, when wood is dried, it becomes STRONGER. However, overly dried wood can become very brittle, especially when you're working across the grain, which is why that dried log seemed to explode.

Balsa wood actually requires drying to make it worth using. The process applied to Balsa is interesting. The cells are so large that after drying the wood is mostly air. Balsa before drying barely floats.
Dargonhuman Hace 2 meses
@Taolan8472 Yes, exactly. Contrary to popular belief, dry wood's higher hardness factor makes it easier to split as the fibers are less able to flex with stress. The water in the wood makes it far more pliable and harder to split, to say nothing of the extra structural integrity that the extra mass of water inherently provides.
