I know that many of you would not think one would need a fireplace in Florida. Well, da little woman and I was glad we had it this past winter (Winter 2010) as our heater went kaputz on Christmas Eve. Interestingly enough that was the same day that my area of Florida dipped down into the 30’s and stayed there for better than a week. We even experienced 20 and 30 degree weather for 3+ weeks back in Jan/Feb 2010.
Here is how we had been storing the wood. Rather messy and unorganized.
This design I created allows me to separate and store three different sizes in one area. I used L brackets for added support and I looked for rough wood while at HD to give a rustic look.
All my kindling, medium and large logs are easy to get to and being off the ground, the wood can dry out and season well during our hot summers.
Not photographed; I have a heavy plastic sheet that I use as a cover to keep the rain off.
Once again, this project allowed me to use dad’s tools that I inherited. This incredible set of well balanced punches
And of course what I believe to be my favorite tool from dad … The Radial Arm Saw!
I remember being around 10 years old when he got this and how excited and proud he was of that saw. Gotta love The RAS!!
