    I know all about drying oak. The last 2 slabs came out perfect.

    Today there are three wood deliveries being made! So far just in 2016, Firewood Helper has delivered to 19 families. We couldn't do it without all the volunteers each May who give up a weekend to help cut & split wood for others. THANKS!!

    I've made a form for you to fill out online to receive a FREE 2016 t-shirt for the charity cut in May!

    All you have to do is enter your name, what color shirt you want and your size for EACH person.

    The survey will only sign up one person at a time, so you may have to complete it a couple of times if you're also signing up a spouse or kids.

    The deadline for signing up for shirts is Friday, April 15.

    Here's the link:

    We're looking forward to seeing everyone in a few months!

    Yesterday we delivered our 45th heart warming load of free firewood for the 2015-16 season. A special Valentines Day thank you to all the firewood helpers.

    You're a good man Doug!!

    So when is the date of this Charity cut? Fall of 2016? I was really hoping to make the Spring Iowa GTG again, but tragedy struck the Hoskies.

    The Charity Cut is May 14, 2016 in Waukee, Ia. I think the Hoskies are still having a GTG the last Saturday in April.

    Bump. Delivery count is now 48 loads of free wood. These loads are equal to two full size pickup loads or three short box truck loads.


    Getting more logs hauled in.

    Hello all, been lurking and sent a couple private messages.

    I'm going to try to make it to the event. I have two graduations that weekend, but might be able to donate a few hours.

    I just bought a new saw and it would be a good place to break it in.

    I do have some wood that is available when it drys back up and you have time.
