How to make a wood splitter?

Well, that’s actually the easiest part of the project. 

Here’s how to do it: 1. 

Find a large flat surface. 

I used a sheet of plywood that I could use to make this splitter. 

The splitter will have to be fairly thick. 

2. 

Measure around the surface. 

 I found that the width of the splitter is about 12″ (30cm). 

3. 

Use an electric drill and drill out the groove for the wood. 

A drill bit will do just fine, but if you want a bit bigger, you’ll need a bit of a jigsaw. 

4. 

Place the wood into the drill. 

For this, you want to make sure that the drill bit doesn’t come in contact with the wood, or else you could damage it. 5. 

Hold the drill with a screwdriver and drill a small hole in the bottom of the wood splutter. 

6. 

Attach the wood to the splatter with the metal screws. 

This is a good time to carefully check to make certain that everything fits in the hole. 

7. 

Slide the wood onto the splitcher. 

You can use your fingernails to keep it snug. 

8. 

Carefully drill a hole in each side of the drill head. 

Make sure that you drill the holes as well. 

9. 

Put the spliper into the wood with a little bit of pressure. 

10. 

Now it’s time to finish the wood floor cleaner. 

 I use a wood spinner for this, which is a bit more complex than a regular splitter because it takes the time to build the wood base. 

1. 

Cut the wood of the desired length. 

As you can see in the photo, I use a 1/4″ wood dowel. 

2. 

Grab a large wooden dowel and start cutting the wood as you would a regular spindle. 

3: Now use your wood spindle to hold the wood in place. 

It’s best to have a bit left over so you can finish this splitcher later. 

After the spliter is built, you can use it to make splinting tools. 

If you’re making splints, you should start with the splinter, but you can always use the splitting spindle if you need it later. 

 6.

Wood splitter –  1/2″ wood dowel, 3/4 inch drill bit, 4 inch screwdriver. 

If you can’t find this type of wood splatter, I recommend the wood spatter from Wood-Furniture-Shop, but this is more expensive and not as useful for wood floor cleaners. 

These are all just ideas. 

Do you have a wood floor splitter idea that you’d like to share?
