Winter, stoves, and free heat...

Winter and time to get a heat in front of the stove you have cut wood for all summer in preparation...





Norwegian Wood; 

I was given this amazing book for my Christmas 3 years ago from my Big bro and O,
And what a great read on firewood, how to cut it and stack it and dry it. It may be focused around Scandinavia but the principles are the same around the world as is the satisfaction and feeling of contentment and how therapeutic it can be cutting your own firewood...

It features some great information and some amazing pictures of stacked firewood...







Turns out a couple of friends already know about and have this book and love it too.
If you follow  This link... to Amazon for the book you can read the first few pages of the book,
It`s a hard book to put down once you get into it...


Here is a film on Youtube by SkillCult of his own review of the book...


You can read his own blog post of the book Here...
