From pieces of firewood in the shop wood pile to usable boxes. Branches & limbs are readily available at the curb after wind / ice storm. Chainsawing the wood is one of my biggest projects. First year was the toughies, waiting for it to dry. Guess a kiln would be in order.

Really nice work.

What’s your finger-joint tool of choice?

I often wonder if getting unsplit firewood by the cord isn’t the cheapest way to get stock.
