As many of my regular readers will already know, when I'm not a stay-at-home-dad, I go off to work as a self employed carpenter. It's a job I really enjoy and it has a few perks. One of which is taking all the waste wood and off-cuts home
|The pile was growing slowly...|
I'm quite diligent at bringing these off-cuts home. I always tidy up each night before I leave where ever I'm working and I bring the wood home each night and chuck it in my lean-to shed on the drive. This does not look very tidy and I sometimes wonder if its worth it.
I had an afternoon yesterday chopping up all these bits, making sure they'd fit on our fire before being put into the proper woodshed. Turns out there was quite a bit there! Mainly pine with a mix of oak, popular, sapelle and walnut.
|Chopped up ready for the fire.|
We shouldn't be short of kindling this year!
Anyone else have a job with a low budget perk?
