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.
