  1. I am always on the lookout for timber in the Beds, Bucks, Herts area they want to get rid of..

    I would happily come get it from you as long as it’s free/cheap. Any now or in the future please send me a pm.

    I am not in the industry just looking for stuff to season for my Rayburn to keep the bills down so not too fusy what I receive.

    Let me know if Long Marston, Tring. close enough. I would like your Hardwood timber please. Especially if you can just dump it on our drive.

     

    I have a VW transporter van I can borrow for the day and collect a load or two.

  3. 4 Demi-Johns Blackberry wine.

     

    But you have to remember when it is blackberry time. Too stingy to pay for the kits.

     

    Also been told to leave it at least a year to mature so will be ready for Christmas next year.


  4. Admittedly did also say:

     

    Cordwood won't become firewood without a lot of effort.

     

    By the time I have paid for the wood, a lorry, a decent chainsaw (not a B&Q Chinese special,) protective gear and possibly a training course, I won't have much change compared to the commercial price of wood and not only that it is mostly softwood.

     

    Plus, all sorts of wildlife like living in big woodpiles. LOL

     

    It's likely to be full of all sorts of knarly lumps that would be very difficult to split. Otherwise, you would have chunked it up and flogged it as logs or even sold it on to King Acre. There is also a fair amount of big stuff in it that you'd have a job getting through without a hydraulic splitter, and I don't mean one of those dinky little machine mart things - same goes for the chainsaw - a B&Q £80 special isn't going to deal with half of it.


  5. But it is soo frustrating when the damn things don't fit. Especially when still in yer PJ's trying to get fire going on a cold day. The last thing you want to do is go outside in the frost/snow and find a smaller bit or chop a bit off. I am more organised though now after three years.

     

    Our Rayburn is 10" by 12" so the smaller bits get stacked one way and the longer lengths go the other and if they a bit too long they get stacked diagonally otherwise they get put to one side to be chopped up.
