    So I set up a little roadside stand in front of my house for the hollidays selling firewood. Tying twine was a pain in the arse and took to long, haywire went, well, haywire, zip ties were expensive and plastic postal straps were not available. So I bought me a roll of shrink wrap and that was better, but still needed worked. So I grabbed a turntable bearing from Princess Auto (Canada's version of Harbour Frieght), and built me this:



    For the price, I can't beat it.

    I'm not getting rich off of it, but at the end of my driveway there is usually 20-40 dollars there. Christmas was crazy, sold 20 bundles on the eve of the 25th. No snow for us in our neck of the woods, so I suspect that will spurr things. Just hope the city doesn't shut me down, it's a small booth in front of my house.

    Is that set up as an honor system? If so, what do you have out there that they put the money in?
