Yeah... That is all she needs, a four fingered, one legged teen with a new nickname of stumpy.
I don't care for "Stumpy" let's choose another name for him.

Trim the other side and just call him Neal

But seriously, I am curious why you have a problem w/ the small electric chainsaw ADaniLion, that's damn near a kitchen appliance.Maybe your stance or technique? A huge part of the DIY thing is not just doing the job, but doing it yourself for the satisfaction of a problem solved by your own efforts.

Besides, everyone knows you really need the power of a gas one to cut off a limb, you'd be all day gnawing at it w/ an electric.

The hardest part will be clamping the split log so it won't move and bind the saw as you cut---

Any body have a good clamp idea?

This is the type of blade you want.

I think the recipricating saw would be much more difficult to control than the chain saw. The log is going to be bouncing all over the place with the back and forth blade action.
The chainsaw or a hand bow saw is the proper tool for this job.
Make sure the chain has been sharpened or the cutting will be much more difficult.

This might work if your firewood is not too large:

Why not put the pieces in slightly crosswise? Works in my stoves.

When I order firewood, I specifiy the length. Wrong length, I refuse the load.
