Bring in Wood Easily with a Log Carrier
This simple invention works to ease your log carrying load. How did we carry logs without this?? Since we partially heat our home with a wood stove, it was a necessary chore to bring in loads of split wood every other day during the coldest months. My family would take turns but our children started feeling like beaten down pack mules.
My mother sent us her yearly box of knick knacks and gifts for Christmas. This box is always a special ceremony to open, mainly because its from my mom, but also we had no idea what was in it and was a fun surprise. Sometimes it had thoughtful gifts for everyone, sometimes gifts for the house like place settings and glassware.
This year, one of the things she sent was a canvas log carrier! At first we looked at the cloth and handles and thought, this is no where near sturdy enough for the amount we need to bring in. It'll fall apart after a few uses.
Wrong! This hands down is the best practical gift she ever gave us. Every single family member says a thank you in our mind to her whenever we use it, which is all the time in the winter.
The reasons it is so good:
*It carries two arm loads at one time.
*It balances differently so it gives the muscles a break from the regular workout.
*It makes it neater and easier to unload the logs onto the hearth.
My husband carries it alone and my daughters each take an end and carry it together.
I highly recommend the Panacea Canvas Log Tote for yourself or as a gift for someone you know that has a fireplace.
This log holder helps us carry heavy log loads.
