Kindling 101 -- 7th Edition
« on: November 06, 2017, 02:24:54 PM »
OMG! It's been 7 years since I made this video for B&B.

Firewood season is upon us. We heat two residences with wood stoves, so kindling is continual necessity.
I'm re-posting this for any new members, or old-timers here who are feeling nostalgic.

Yup.  Good stuff.
