Furniture Burning in our Woodstove
It’s gotten so cold we’re reduced to burning the tables and chairs. Just kidding! Yes, that is real furniture in the belly of our woodstove, but we have plenty of real firewood.
Will busted up a maple wood bench that Holly had bought about 25 years ago. It was a nice bench but it has been gradually breaking apart. Holly finally got frustrated with perpetually fixing it. Dry rot was setting in to the point where it was like George Washington’s axe – handle’s been replaced four times and the head twice…
So off the maul it went. I must admit the very dry wood did make excellent kindling on cold winter mornings. The coals quickly jump back to life with something so easy to burn.
