    I remember reading your story. I “made” bar lube one time too when I had a bunch of misc oils in the garage that didn’t have a purpose.

    Got a load of mostly apple, some pear. Might segregate that for smoking. Some elm left for the next load. Got my little helper with me today. [​IMG]

    Got a call from Paul the developer this afternoon, I guess the storage area cut has been put on hold :(
    Got to go walk a new property tomorrow with some big Spruce and hardwoods to cut so they can plant a new house :)
    Back to the storage area cut after that :)
    I sure don't want to run low on wood , it's been a long cold season up here you know ...

    I was told that that the storage area was going to be cut by a fella that owed Paul money so he was going to work off the debt , well, the fella thought that just slashing the driveway in through the brush was more work than what repayment of the debt should be lol
    Paul is not very happy , I is very happy :)

    Had the stove going yesterday probably get a small fire going after work this morning to keep the furnace from running. Never thought mid may I'd still need the stove burning.

    Yes it does. And saves the better wood for the real cold weather.

    Depends on the species of maple. Sugar maple IS the good wood

    Sugar (Hard) Maple, Black (Rock) Maple and Norway Maple all have very respectable BTU ratings. Red Maple is lower (but decent) and Silver Maple, Box Elder + Sycamore (all are Maples) are lower. Want to impress someone with your saw … film it in Silver Maple!

    Could you tell only by the pictures which type of maple my wood load is ? I thought about sugar maple but not 100% sure. What I do know is that they are on the heavy side

    Burnt some trash with a few sticks. But it wasn't really necessary today.

    Was abusing a handyman jack the other day on a loaded trailer and dislodged a rib. Put my projects on hold for a bit. Really sucks cause it's so nice out. Can't even visit the neighbor he's out of town on a fire alert up around Backus.
