Any advise/tips on cleaning the outside of the glass? This is the 3rd season for my 550.
I had smudges on exterior of the glass and just used paper...
Cats enjoy the bean bag chair and the Jotul.
I have 1.5 cord of red oak c/s/s in May 09, 1.5 cord Cherry c/s/s in Oct 10.
Will start working on 2012/13 supply.
I had a standing dead pignut hickory and it took 2 years to get to 20%. IMO it is along the lines of oak for seasoning time.
I have had good results...
I am not sure about the Redwood - did not think we had any around here.
Will try to post a picture as it has just been topped for now.
Not sure about milling . . . it is right along an old property fence line.
My neighbor told me he is having some dead trees removed from the small woods behind our houses.
He offered me the wood and of course I graciously...
Take a piece and split it - stick the probes in the fresh cut side of the split near the middle.
The ends and exposed sides dry first and...
I starting to become a fan of cherry.
Split some rounds in July that are now measuring ~20%.
Here are pictures of my first HH.
I don't buy into the faster drying theories- just wanted to do something different.
It is a better conversation...
Point well taken.
I just had not ever come across this kind before.
It does have a lot of knots which is knot much fun splitting by hand.
Not red on...
Thanks for the many insights.
I am attaching a copy of the splits.
Definitely smells like cat piss.
Local tree service dropped these rounds off for me.
They are wet from the recent rain.
Thanks in advance

I originally thought this was an oak. When I split some rounds I was surprised at the green color inside.
I don't have any leaves. I appreciate any...
I called my insurance company to inform them of my newly installed insert.
They sent me a form fill out - make, model, installer, etc.
That was it -...
Received mine this week.
Can't wait to give them a try!
Not exactly sure how it came down. We had a bad T-storm about 2 weeks ago and saw that it was leaning. Wasn't sure it had always been like that and...
The tree was on my property and fell into a common area. That large one next to it will go down someday and will hopefully fall the same way as all...
This oak came down behind my house the other night.
Luckily it fell away from the house into the woods.
My latest bill was $0.59 / therm for nat gas. Then add $0.25 / therm for distribution and another $0.01 for fees/taxes.
If gas stays cheap through...
BB is right on. I paid $2,900 in May (before it "qualified" for the tax credit) for my Rockland including Surround.
I just bought a cord of seasoned (22%) black locust.
Will let you know how I like it in a few months.
I didn't do much - it found me!
I got most of it split today after it stopped raining.
It split very well except for the knotty parts.
This dead tree was my neighbor's - came down in my yard in last week's storm.
I understand completely. I am of the same thought and I do not have the access to free wood or the means to scrounge.
You may want to look into gas inserts. They are different than gas fireplaces - efficient, safe, clean, give off a lot of heat and have blowers. I...
This being my first year with the Jotul, I started to get concerned with my wood supply for the winter as my oak is reading 35%. I decided to buy...
That install looks great! I like the stonework.
I can relate - I had the 550 installed in May and had my break-in fires when it was 70 outside.
I am a bit concerned about drying - it has been a very wet spring in the Mid-Atlantic. This will be my first winter with the Jotul insert so I just...
