Topic: Firewood crosscutting, splitting and stacking

Ever wondered how to best cut and split the odd long log you come across? Whether from neighbours gardens, or found on the roadside - we all come across logs. It is such a shame to waste them!

At this event, you'll have the chance to crosscut logs by hand with the ShedTherapy.com experts. They'll show you how to
- crosscut using the folding sawbuck
- split and stack your log so it dries quickly.
- measure you logs to just fit your stove
- know when your fuel is dry and ready to burn
- try the "top down" Norwegian fire-lighting method

You also get the chance to build your own woodstore from pallets - think of this as a Wendy House for adults!

Got an axe or splitting maul? - then bring it. We'll give it a safety check and sharpen it.

Cost NIL. Saws, sawbucks, splitting mauls and chopping blocks will be available for trial and for sale.

Youtube shows what we did at Palnackie.
