Making your own logs from Newspaper
Frugal, thrifty and helping the environment
First, the most viewed Log Maker 'how to'
There are many ways of cutting down solid fuel bills, especially if you have an Aga or Rayburn.
Frugally speaking, the best fuel is free fuel ! You can stop your car at the roadside and pick up wood to take home and there's even some good burning materials inside Skips as well!
My Log Maker
1. It saves buying fuel
I won't pretend you could make do with logs made with one of these for a whole winter. You could, but it would take a lot of early preparation during the Summer month's when they will dry much quicker.
That's not saying they are a novelty, they have a sound reason and there's not much more comforting than to know you are playing a part in your families and their's future environment.
There are two types, the 'Briquette' which I have, or the Cylinder type.
My own experience is, if it's a nice warm summers day, it's a few hours outside in the garden doing something positive.
Finally, if you find it too mundane a job - get the Kids to do it !
