Brief content of the article:
Making a woodpile with your own hands is a simple task. It is more difficult, perhaps, to learn how to chop and chop firewood. It is only in fairy tales and epics that things are argued. It is unusual for a modern person to work with both a chainsaw and an ax. It takes time to develop a skill, the appearance of dexterity.
There is also enough brushwood in the country, but it burns out quickly, it must be constantly thrown up, otherwise the flame will blow out with the wind or it will go out on its own. Large branches, massive pieces of wood burn longer, the wind is not a hindrance. For this they are appreciated.
The length of the log usually does not exceed half a meter, often less. It is additionally split with an ax into four to eight parts, sometimes more. This is done in order to dry the tree.
Freshly cut wood does not light up, smokes, gives soot, does not burn completely. It will take much more time to dry a log than to dry firewood — in the inner layer, in the core, the sap of the plant circulates most actively, but does not circulate at all in the bark.
By splitting a log into several pieces, you can speed up the process by providing air access to the wettest part.
It is also convenient to stack firewood due to the triangular shape, square. More wood is placed in the woodpile. The logs will fall, it will be difficult to lift them, throw them. So it’s better to learn how to work with an ax or a chainsaw. It is not necessary to use an ax — this is a tribute to tradition.
Firewood should be chopped taking into account the time it will take to dry it and taking into account the life cycle of the tree. If you do this in the spring, they will dry out in 4 months, approximately. Cut at the end of summer dry for almost a year — 300-310 days.
But if you chop them in July, it will take two and a half months to dry — during this period, the juice enters the young branches, the fruits are most active, it does not linger in the stiffened part of the trunk.
The fact that firewood is easily stacked forms a fairly stable monolith, both good and bad at the same time. Air access is limited. It is advisable, before defining them in a woodpile, dump them in an embankment, leave them for a couple of weeks in that part of the yard where there is a lot of sun.
Varieties of firewood
It will take quite a bit of time to make a woodpile on your own. The design is elementary. Looking at the photo of the woodpile for firewood, you can once again be convinced of this.
Aesthetics should be given a lot of attention, otherwise an important component will be lost — a decorative function. You can rely on your own strength, imagination, available materials, and start creating a drawing. And you can look at those options that you definitely can’t do on your own.
Metal woodpile, for example, can be ordered from a blacksmith, painted or varnished. They can be supplemented with forging. Metal flowers, foliage, an abstract combination of geometric shapes, lines will perform a decorative function.
The construction will be light. Even a large woodpile made of metal in a summer cottage with a small area will look great.
There are different woodpile. You can, of course, choose the most beautiful option and not worry about anything else. But it is better to take into account other parameters — height, length, width. They are chosen depending on how much firewood you need to have in stock.
A firewood rack for a summer residence should be practical. Cumbersomeness excluded. It should fit in a barn, for example. If you need little firewood, it is better to give the extra to a neighbor and sell it. Perhaps it’s time to get carried away with carpentry, handicraft, this material, learn how to make crafts from wood.
In order to protect firewood from dampness, moisture in autumn, winter, spring, as little protective materials as possible should be used. Therefore, the structure is usually placed near the wall of the house, on a concrete foundation.
As a result, precipitation affects only one side of the monolith of stacked firewood. They do not get very wet and do not rot due to the fact that air access is limited.
Before concrete was invented, firewood was sometimes stored on the ground covered with a layer of bark. However, in those days they were spent faster, throwing them into the oven, drowning the house with them, preparing food with their help.
If the place in the barn had not yet been vacated, it was possible to chop them up and leave them in the yard. When it became spacious in the barn, the new ones moved to their rightful place, so as not to rot, to lie warm.
Famous fun, beautiful woodpile
The round woodpile can still be stacked on the bark to this day. This is a spectacular sight — a tower of firewood. To create it, you only need to designate a place, drive in a stake, tie a rope to it and, using small wooden logs, draw a circle, focusing on its length.
The soil should be covered with bark and firewood should begin to be placed. They can last a long time if you try. The wind will not destroy this structure.
A folded woodpile of firewood in a modern, rational person will cause amazement and admiration, of course. This is a wonderful design element of the yard. True, sometimes you don’t want to take up a place where you can create a flower garden, plant something.
In this case, you can purchase a metal round woodpile with several sectors, put it right on the porch, for example, so that you don’t go far for firewood in bad weather.
