    These type wood splitters were just hammered into the end grain. Some of the wood would go up into the bore and acted as a projectile. The projectile ( wood plug), when fired, was driven into the log causing it to split.

    I've seen people split logs with just a bored hole, tamped with sand; Down side is that if the log has voids inside, the pressure all leaks out and not much splitting happens.
