A Twig Rig

Building woodstove fires is wicked easier this year thanks to these:

These are harnessed sticks from the box elder that Wally had to cut down in order to put up our fence last spring. He knew the branches would make awesome kindling but wasn't sure how to store them so that they'd stay un-mucky, and in one place. But after encountering some thought and some orphaned wire and a recycled pallet he had his answer. I call them "the genius bins" for no real reason other than a passing comment he made (and doesn't remember making) about being a genius for putting them together.

And I agree! I love our genius bins! AND our cheap easy kindling wood. Happy woodstove season! (all seven months of it...)
