    New branch logger in action

    I trim all mine except ash which is less twiggy sounds like a good plan with the paper bags branch / mini logs. The way forward if we could work out best way to do it not sure about drying out the branches i find the fresher the wood the neater the cut dry stuff tends to shatter ??

    New branch logger in action

    Hi mr billhoook when you say you log them into a bulk container could you elaborate ? What's the container how do the mini logs dry how do you get them back out into the scuttle i have a small logger from welmac and find the net bags less than ideal tried logging some into ventilated barrow bags but found them difficult to empty and the mini logs went a bit mouldy most of mine go in the gasifying boiler and for starting /cheering up the stove Thank anyone else have any tips ?

    water proofing plywood

    hi have made a bench with a plywood top its inside an open shed so will get a little rain or snow blowing in also condensation drips from melting ice would thompson waterseal do the job or do i have to go whole hog varnish / epoxy coating ? thanks for any tips david
  10. Mini dogs enjoy minilogsmini logs also bucket loading system
  11. I tried an old coke hod as well as buckets not a success for me as hod tapered towards the top so mini logs unwilling to come out
  12. i decant my branch logs into buckets and tip/ throw them 1/2 a bucket at a time into the stove bit of a technique required but works ok 100 % agree that top loading would be too dusty /smoky esp in a cafe
