It burns for several hours and it makes no smoke. It's a bit of a pain in the butt to drill that long hole in the end grain but it makes a nice candle and it boils water fast.

I do think I could do the chainsaw idea though. Thanks for that idea.

I don't own a powered log splitter, I wonder if that is how they are splitting them so perfectly.
