Accessories for carrying firewood: an overview of 4 options from various materials
With the approach of the summer season, we begin to think about updating the inventory, acquiring convenient appliances for the summer cottage - comfort in the country is no less important than at home or at work. The first warming always makes you want to spend time outdoors by the fire, barbecue, but here you can’t do without firewood. A device for carrying firewood can be a convenient help - you need to maintain fire, prepare firewood in advance. Using a homemade or ready-made bag for firewood, it is no longer necessary to go to the woodpile several times, and if you went out for a picnic, in the woods, or fishing, carrying it will be very useful here - you can conveniently put brushwood and dry branches in it and not carry it all this in an armful.
The advantage when using the carry is to keep the clothes clean, carrying firewood in their hands, it is unlikely to be able to maintain a neat appearance. Rigid portable structures - metal or wicker from a rod, can also be used as a stationary firewood in the hall by the fireplace or in the sauna.
Consider a few simple ways to make a carrying bag.
Option # 1 - carrying fabric or leather
You need to choose a dense fabric, you can use old unnecessary clothes. From the fabric we cut out a couple of rectangles - 50/80 cm. If the material is very durable, you can do with a piece of fabric in one layer, we sew two panels for greater strength. In terms of width, we determine the center of the canvas, in the center a cut is cut to the size of the male hand (an average of 15/15 cm). The same length is cut in width on the other side.
The protruding strips of fabric, which turned out as a result, will be carrying handles, they need to be folded in half and sewn to the fabric, leaving unstitched space on the sides. The result should be handles with side holes, where then you need to insert strong sticks made of plastic or wood. It will be a convenient carry for firewood. A more expensive option is the use of skin instead of dense tissue, such carrying is more practical and will last longer. Today, tailoring services are also offered online.
For the manufacture of carrying, you need to choose a dense fabric, not necessarily new. It can be an old coat, jacket, or a piece of canvas. If there is an unnecessary old leather jacket - use it to create a durable carry
We cut out the carrying for firewood, securely sew the handles to the main canvas. Since the cutout for the hands is quite large, you can use sticks of different diameters, the main thing is that they are comfortable to hold in your hand
Option # 2 - Ready Wicker Firewood
At the dacha, you can also successfully use firewood for the sauna in the form of a wicker basket. A basket of twigs for carrying firewood is not suitable as a device for large logs, but small logs, brushwood will be convenient to carry in it. Wicker baskets for storing firewood by the fireplace are also suitable, they are larger.Recent entries In April, I process roses so that no pests encroach on my beauties
