Spike -vs- Woodpile


Sunday 30 March, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Every farm has a woodpile, and this one is no exception. After pruning, lopping, chopping and trimming, our trees have given us enough wood for next winter. However, logs don’t come ready-chopped, or ready-stacked – that’s where sunny spring days, the old cut-off jeans, work-boots and dangerous toys come into play…

Step One – Assemble woodpile over winter



Step Two – Lonesome farm-worker needs a cutting aid





Step Three – Start to snap, bowsaw cut, break or chainsaw



Step Four – Create large pile of assorted cut up wood



Step Five – Scrape up all the sawdust and woodchips for the flower beds!



Step Six – Restack logs and leave a few piles of kindling to dry over summer
