Firewood Forever
« on: January 09, 2017, 08:21:37 pm »
A hard blow last week took care of this already weakened Red Oak in my next door neighbor's yard.  He does not burn wood, so I got a call.  I can see it from my back window.   :)
 

 
 

 
That will be enough firewood for 2-3 years.   :o

Turns out some 'free logs' are actually a good deal after all.  :D

I've got a neighbor down the road clearing some land with a bulldozer.  He's got lots of trees piled up for burning.  I need to go talk to him.

This is Water Oak which is our lower quality Red Oak.  Since this is much more than I could burn in years, I will call a couple of friends and we will share.   ;D

Obviously you're not a wood burner. ;D But good deal  8)
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

I am sure that compared to your wood usage I am not.
 

 
 

 
Our temperature changes can be quite dramatic due to the influence of the warm air off of the Gulf of Mexico.  We had several days of below freezing last weekend but our daytime forecast for the next week+ is in the 70's.  It is 60 right now, so no wood is being burned.   ;D

MM...I saw your snowman, but you had "several days below freezing"?

I can't recall when it got up above freezing here! No mosquitos though!

Looks good. I like the support for the legs. Looks like it curves?

Yup.
The stretcher piece is curved and the legs slant out by 10 degrees.
Good eye!

Are you sure you want that mess... I've seen some dozer burns and they are ugly dirty rascals.. prepare to buy a couple saw chains..
