THAT is a nice pile of firewood, congrats!
I use damp rid inside the stove as well. It's cheap insurance for a non-air conditioned house in a humid climate.
I've got many memories of seeing the Amish and their 6-mule teams plowing fields in Lancaster. Incredibly powerful animals, and absolutely huge...
Mine too. Just shoot it a nasty look while holding your splitting implement of choice and it falls into perfect 4" square splits.
My dad and father in law both have old-school troy bilts. Neither is quite done with theirs yet, so I got a used craftsman to hold me over for a few...
Good for you, I'm sure everyone's kindness means even more than the nice amount of wood that you put up for him. I hope he does well with his cancer...
I grew up in Leola. Great to hear all the Lancaster-talk.
I usually put a container of damprid inside the stove during non-burning months as a precaution. I don't know if it does anything or not, but we do...
Even if it's 'fine' this winter, by next year it'd be spectacular.
I c/s/s about a cord from one large tree this spring. I can tell you for sure in about five years, but it seems pretty middle of the road.
Probably pinoak. That's some tough splitting once you get up to where the branches start.
There are amish tree services in the area that would...
Looks great! It's good to know a few farmers.
Those chickens are wandering awfully close to that axe & chopping block :eek:
Sooner or later that wedge is going to fly out and give him a pedicure.
My installer recommended to wait to sweep until fall, that way there's no chance of a nest or something that happened over the summer causing...
Nice stove choice, I've had my eye on an Ash for a little while now. My stoves a bit undersized, and if we have another winter or two like this past...
Great to know, thanks BB! I'll have to start making a list.
He just needs a safety shield on the backside- anyone who backs too close could get a nasty 'wedgie'
It's very dense & makes nice firewood. I would guess 2 years, but maybe someone else might think one year is enough?
Nice work! That one doesn't look like it'll get knocked down any time soon!
Still burning occasionally in Virginia. This is what God created soft maple for, right?
I was thinking the same thing!
Looks great! When will the stove be put in?
I didn't know Dennis had a twin!
Great looking stacks there, embers, almost too pretty to burn.
Agree - the reason I first started to top cover was because of all the leaves that were collecting on top and between the rows. I try to keep...
Is ugly a shape? I end up with lots of those.
I prefer squares for smaller E/W fireboxes like mine.
I have no knowledge, but good luck. A jotul in that spot will make one of the best looking installations ever. I love old houses.
Sounds like you've already got it. Make sure your chains are sharp and try a full chisel chain if you want to before dropping $500 on a new saw....
I assume that process be the same for an 025? Thanks for a great tutorial!
