Log carrier for my huntsman

2 Comments

We use a soapstone wood stove as our main heating for most of the cold weather months. It’s super energy efficient… as in, it uses no electricity. We just set our home heating system to kick in if it drops below 60 degrees, which it never does with the wood stove burning, so we save tons of money on our electricity bill. Plus it makes the house smell amazing!

We keep all the wood outside in our driveway, and Kevin requested that I make a log carrier so he can carry several logs inside at a time. I already had two yards of canvas on hand so I whipped this up for him. Christmas present, DONE.

Now he can carry 5-7 logs in at a time so he doesn’t have to make multiple trips to fill up the stove.

Bonus: it folds up and is completely machine washable.

  1. That’s a great idea. My family heats their home mostly by wood stove, and I haven’t seen a log carrier around for quite a few years. I might have to keep this in mind for next Christmas. Thanks for sharing!
