    I used to have one of those pot metal cradles with the leather carriers to hold my splits (next to the woodstove). After three years using that, I decided to make this. I put casters on it so I can roll it to my back door, load up, and then roll it back to the woodstove. It has hooks for my tongs, poker, shovel, and leather carriers to get from woodpile to cart. I also put a shelf on to hold fatwood. See the divider on the bottom of the left hand side? I put that in to hold all-nighters- it is exactly as wide as my side door on my stove. If it doesnt fit in the divided area, it won't go in the stove.

    Hey, cool idea. You should patent it. A lot of people would find something like that useful. Unfortunately for me, there's a step in my den between the backyard door and the living room so short of making a ramp, that wouldn't work in my case.

    I want the deluxe model.

    The one that senses it is empty, moves itself outside, fills itself up (inspecting and rejecting splits for bugs , grubs and worms), comes back in, closes the door and parks itself back near the stove.



    The bigger brother model that goes out in the woods and harvests trees in the cold and snow or Summer heat might be nice, too.



    I like it.
    My porch is one step down out the door, so I'd need slightly bigger wheels.

    Thanks for the kind words. A couple of my friends said it wouldn't work or seemed like they thought it was dumb. These people are still paying the oil company! Ha! Peace.

    Enough for four to five days! Maybe more if I stack it above the top rail.

    Well, here it is. I didn't want to fill it up before now, because I was only burning some nights, so I didn't want all that wood chillin in the house for too long.
