Mrunix: The pictures may not show it well enough, but I am splitting it with the grain (as much as it would allow). The grain my be spiraling as someone else pointed out.

That is what I was referring to – splitting from the end, which is splitting with the grain. Your wedges are all along the side of the log, so you are going across the grain. Think of how you would split a log with a mechanical wood splitter – you split from the end of the log, not with the log sideways.

Cheers,
