10 Easy Pieces: Firewood Log Carriers


10 Easy Pieces: Firewood Log Carriers

December 27, 2013

Around this time of year, when my sisters and I migrate home for the holidays, we become what my dad calls “fire gloms.” We can’t help it. My parents’ house is never exactly toasty, and the roaring fire in the kitchen fireplace is the perfect spot for gathering. Enter the house during the winter and you’ll no doubt see all four of us lined up, bums toward the fire. 

Of course someone needs to keep the fire roaring, so a few years ago I generously gave my dad a log carrier to help him with the task.

Here’s a roundup of ten firewood log carriers, perfect for toting logs from woodshed to fireplace without snagging sweaters or mussing rugs in the process.
