I like your firepit JM -
I am thinking I will go and scrounge a really neat old yard/garden bench that some neighbors of mine tossed out to the street. has a bit of Nordic styling to it. and heavy duty. top is dry rotted on sides of top boards... junk, imo. but having scoped it out today, seems the repairs needed are easy to do. just have to do them. table saw, skil, drill, hammer, nails and some glue. then if it fits, thinking to put it back in the far end of the woodshed. not sure I will refill it with firewood. in any event, I will find a good place for it. maybe an outside workbench back of my barn area. doubt it will be gone, no one took it today. I almost went to get it today, but... other things took precedent. i'll post a pix if I haul it in...
You guys must have real dry climates. I can assure you there is no 20+ year old firewood around here, with the possible exception of Locust and maybe some Rock Oak (Chestnut Oak).
I fact, a lot of wood will go punky after 2-3 years.
Look like nice dead ash Jeff.
More back yard clearing. Couple of pin oaks to add to the apple pile. Cut two 10' logs the FIL wants to take to the mill in town.
I'm in a semi arid climate here, about 16" total precip/yr. I have had willow in the stacks directly on the ground for over 4 or 5 years with no deterioration even in the layer on the ground. I have cut and burned bucksking willow from logs that have been down for years - only minor surface rot where in contact with the ground.
Don't forget to take some pics of it and the bark too, will be interesting to see what it looks like.
Quick question fellow scroungers, where is the best place to buy a 24” bar and chain for a 372 husky?
Also does anyone have a recommendation for chain?
I got good service and a good deal from Nate @fordf150 at https://www.performanceoutdoorequipment.com/
Not too far from you either.
Ditto on Nate, probably buy 95% of my stuff from him. He ships or if I want a road trip day it’s 2.25 hours one way.
I see it’s a 740 number which means Ohio, whereabouts is he?
Well, Big Sky day here today
So I headed out to the pit to get a small load of spruce for the week .
I wanted some smaller stuff for shorter burn times as the temps warm up on the sunny days .
Some of the spruce put up a fight lol
Good you got it today Dan. We're sending you some chitty weather tomorrow.
Im stuck burning apple tonight. Snows headed out so till i get a darn helicopter i cant ger to any spruce or tamarack. Might check the ice in the morning and go on a run. Shoulda left the snowmobile back in the hardwoods, and just used the atv for the first part of the tour.
Yes , I know .
Just send up the good weather for the weekends
Jerry showed up after I had a load so ,,,,
I could hear that big ole birch calling my name
A Donk-E-Trail was made .
I busted up some rounds and Donked them out
Ran out of time so I'll have to go Donk out the rest another day .
I know exactly where that is, been by there several times for work.
Call before you go. Nate is moving to the new shop in the next week or so. The old address may not be good if you go. New shop will be on the outskirts of town, easier to get to.
Phone number is good, opens at 9:30. The address will change when he moves.
Separate names with a comma.
