Thank you again for all the advice. I’ve stared at this log for several days and have gotten very demotivated. Hopefully I’ll be able to use what you’ve taught, and I have a (possible) path forward:

1. This isn’t yellow birch.
2. Get some wooden gluts. Drive them in next to the wedges, try to retrieve the wedges.
3. Start/guide the split from the end.
4. Use a hatchet to remove some of the fibers, and an axe to start the split.
5. Wait for the log to dry some more.

Am I missing anything? Besides just getting a chain saw?
