Cold has come to the Northeast, and as a result of a few trees being cut down 18 months ago, I have a large pile of firewood to use in my wood stove…
But… I hate carrying the wood in the canvas carrier I currently have. I’d like to be able to use the strength of my back and shoulders, rather than holding the straps in my hands in front of me. I’m a bulk effort, minimum trips kind of worker.
I imagine something similar to a large tarp, with straps that can be picked up and brought over my shoulder, and carry enough wood for several reloads of my stove. A military style “sea bag” would work, but then you have to dig out the pieces of wood from a bag. I think I’d prefer something more open.
I’m looking for either a pre-made item, or plans to make the same. My wife is very handy with the sewing machine, so any patterns would work. She can handle heavy duty fabrics & strapping with her machines… or I can buy something.
I figure this is specific enough for GQ, but could see a move to IMHO once answered, to discuss the techniques/benefits to different designs.
