I was finally getting around to cleaning up my shop after my last project and ran into what has become an ever lasting quandry…. when is a piece of left over/scrap not worth keeping and should used as firewood/kindling?
Do you base it solely on size? Or does it depend on things like type of wood? Or quality of piece?
Well I finally have worked out a system; I throw all my short cut-offs into a bin, we burn those cut-offs whenever we burn a fire in the backyard fire pit. This tends to keep enough on hand to make the occasional use of the scraps while also keeping the amount down to a reasonable level (not sure if this will be the case come summer).
