Too much work, but is worth it.
Love it. I should like to enjoy them.
Thank you Celeste, shirley and Hanne.
It's a hard job indeed! Thanks so very much Sandy!!
Good size blocks, looks like hard work! Thanks chickiemama.
Great set Chickie.
Thank you morris, Healer, punkie, ebkrueg and PLG.
I hear they call it "making wood." Nice puzzle, -- thanks, Chickie!
The need a good log splitter!
A person who cuts there own firewood warms themselves many, many times!
Madrone is new to me as well.
The effort they are putting in, is well worth it in the end.
That's a lot of work. We connverted our wood burning fireplace over to gas logs a few years ago. I really miss the smell of a wood fire in the house.
Thanx, chickie! Learned something new, I never heard of the madrone.
Just looked it up, it is a very good firewood. They say it is more dense than oak. Which would be a very good mix with the fir, which burns fast.
It is a very unusual looking tree with a deep red/wine colored thin bark.
It is a fir morris. There is another wood that they use called Madrone.
Is that redwood, chickie?
Good for them they split it the old fashioned way, with wedges mauls and axes!!!
We went up another mountain (3500' elevation) on an old SCARY logging road to get this big log. You cannot just help yourself to wood in these mtns. You need a day permit and it has to already be down. My nephew saw this earlier in the week and when we got there someone had already gotten half of it.
