Shogun71 Posted November 11, 2016 Share Posted November 11, 2016 By the grace of the weather gods it is supposed to be beautiful tomorrow. 15 deg C or more. Unseasonably warm with no pressing chores or other things to do... The forge is coming out for my second go at metal work.... I do have a large stock of Tamarack/Larch cutoffs from a project that have just been sitting for a few years. Everything is primed to burn. In the past when we used it for firewood I noticed it burned hot! So I figure I might as well use it all up and save my limited supply of coal. I found using scrap last time did not work as the pieces were too big. I now plan on cutting things down. My research leads to cubes 1" x 1" but that is a lot of time at the saw and unnecessary wear on blades as this wood is hard! I'm leaning to strips 1.5" wide and breaking them up with a hatchet to semi cube shaped. Any suggestions? These are the 2x4 bits that are 2.25"x4.25"...
