OMG! having dry seasoned wood to burn has worked out great. Honestly I have been bouncing on wood storage for 2 years but now it seems I have found a great wood supplier and all of the Doug fir and poplar wood is burning very clean with very little ash. The new window installation made a bit of difference as well on the power bill. I can hear you screaming about helping people with insulation, installing good windows….
I watch my electrical power/energy use and it is dropping like a rock after the siding and new window install. Wrangler had a kindling video that was all about cutting kindling with a hatchet. Not exactly earthshaking info but I will concede cutting firewood in about 1 inch widths makes good kindling! Heck I burned Elm in the past and the ash from Doug fir is almost nothing. Why don’t I burn hard woods? Well Idaho does not grow hardwood trees. Lots of Pines and Fir trees but not Hardwood trees.
Sanders are on sale and I see few jobs that need some sanding. Golly lets see how that works out.
