I remember (almost 40 years ago) one of the professors said he had a sweet gum tree he wanted split up into firewood. I needed the money.

He was from California and this is Florida.

First blow the the axe is bounced off the wood and almost hit me in the face. Gotta be one of the most knarly wood I’ve seen live oak is right up there with it.

So I agree with crank this is probably the same stuff (where are you located).

My only thought is to flood it with epoxy but I think its still going to keep cracking.
