    Does anyone know where I can get one of these signs, "chop your own wood and it will warm you twice" Im just now finishing the tile work on my hearth and would like to install one of these tiles. The only place online I can find one says it will take 6 weeks, was hoping to find one sooner, any help?

    Thanks Chris

    I routinely get 4-5 separate 'warming events' per piece of wood processed. I would like to know how to reduce that number :roll:

    wood warms you many times:

    1) when you burn it
    2) when you split it
    3) when you stack it
    4) when you are hauling it (tree to split, split to pile, pile to house)

    Wood heats you 4 times by my count!

    5 Times, you forgot the Stack repile warmth when your stack it the second time because it fell over.
