subsetzero: You westerners use fir?  Don't you end up with creosote buildup in your chimbley?


It is definaly something to watch.  We clean our chimney about 2 to 3 times a year around here. Chimney fires are the number 1 fire hazard around here.

HeadLever: Headso: I like it for those reasons too, it's one of the few problems in life that you can actually solve by just hitting something harder.

Or by getting a bigger 'hammer'.  I love getting firewood.  saves big money, gets you a bit of exercise, allows you to get into the outdoors.


Well proof you can't disagree with someone 100%.

Outdoor chores are the best. Skip the gym, hit different muscles, feel like you got something done... Can't beat it.

millia: 2wolves: I used to support the AS400 that the family that has the DC Bobcat franchise had to have.

Ah, those heady days when men were real men, and IBM designed, made, and supported hardware.


Which were made in Italy of all places.

Toss in the trick about using a bungee to keep the log together, then you don't have to keep your hand on the log. Or at least you could keep it on the side.

Bunch of pansies, all of ya! Real men split wood using The Stickler.

Come watch an idiot tempt both Darwin and fate for nearly a full 4 minutes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2M0XMVPE4og

I use my awesome karate skills to split wood with my bare hands and feet.

Holy shiate! I've never seen that "Stickler" before. That guy in the video has to be solely responsible for climate change. I don't think I've ever seen a less effective way to split wood.

We're on a 20 acre forest property, covered in Ponderosa and Lodgepole Pines. My trusted Husky L77, an Ochsenkopf axe and a good morning workout are keeping us warm during the long, cold winter.

Happy New Year fellow farkers!

I moved to a state where it's warm and forgot about chopping firewood, shoveling snow, and driving on ice.

/never looked back.

subsetzero: Apple wood is great but takes at least two years to season.  Ash, Oak and Maple are the most easily obtained where I come from.  Cedar makes for nice kindling wood and spring/fall fires.

You westerners use fir?  Don't you end up with creosote buildup in your chimbley?


The creosote buildup has little to do with the species of wood burned.  It's the heat of the fire and the heat of the chimney system.   A lot of people damp their fires way down with softwoods so they burn more slowly. The resulting cool, smoky fire leads to creosote buildup, but the same will happen with hardwoods.

HeadLever: Gough: Pound for pound, it's all about the same.

Most of the eastern hardwoods have about 50% higher heat than the pines and spongy hardwoods we burn out here in the intermountain west.  Not sure about Doug fir and Yellow Pine as they are not on your list.

/thanks for that btw.  that is a good resource.


That's per cord, but per pound it's surprisingly close.

I imagine you'd be in some trouble if you got your leg stuck on that and didn't have a buddy there to shut the truck of.

And put it in reverse for a bit, now that I think about it.

/ow.
