One of our neighbors has a sawmill and he’s been making his own boards for his first chicken coop.
We offered him money for this truckload of firewood but he was more interested in getting rid of these end slabs that didn’t quite make a proper board.
I like to cut the pieces to fit our stove and hack up the thinner pieces for kindling.
We chop wood on a slight incline and sometimes a piece tries to make a run for it down the hill.
Our new firewood catcher saves a little time and effort while also serving as a stack point for a new mini storage that helps to keep things dry.
We upgraded from a firewood tote carrier to this Wellmax shopping cart with wheels last year.
Now we can carry twice the amount with less effort.
The side spokes mostly popped out but weaving some steel wire or thin rope is an easy way to fix it.
Once inside it provides a tidy way of storing the wood.
Anna lifts from the top while I push from the bottom to make it even easier and safer.
