Firewood Box Features

I just finished building a brand new firewood box for our basement wood stove, and we love how it turned out!  Here's why:

  • Easy to build design based off one sheet of plywood (minimal waste or scraps)
  • No pocket holes - just screw together with construction screws
  • Looks finished and beautiful
  • Good size fits logs up to 24" long and holds about a quarter of a cord of wood
  • Contains the bark and mess to inside the wood box
  • Protects the wall behind the wood box 
  • Very sturdy and well made, will hold up for a long time

The knowledge of the pressure points and meridians was good however, because they followed nerves, blood vessels and other sensitive and vital parts of the human anatomy.   bk8
