Log burning is a very popular past time during the Winter months. Although logs are useful all year round, in the winter months, burning logs is fabulously festive and practical at the same time.
So how exactly can burning logs be used?
Logs are great for traditional looking open fires that keep you warm on a chilly evening. They can also be used with wood burning stoves to create a dramatic effect in your living room or conservatory.
A Few Tips on Preparing your Fire
Building your Fire
1. Split logs parallel to each other in the firebox with a space between and fill it with newspaper and kindling. Place on top a few pieces of larger kindling crosswise and light the paper
2. Layer standard log pieces first and on top place a few pieces of heavy kindling. Then place fine kindling on top. Roll up single sheets of newspaper corner to corner and tie a loose knot in each. Place about 5 of these above or in front of the kindling and light the paper
