Since I placed my order for the Pizzone I have been on the hunt for "affordable" firewood. Crawling CL, asking friends, etc. Then I remembered that one of my clients, a landscape supplier sells firewood. I dropped him an email and he told me that he had plenty of dry oak firewood and to come on by.
So I dropped by yesterday and told him what I was looking to do with the wood and his face lit up. He told me that he has 10 bags of "kindling" that he had collected while sifting through his delivery last year. Because apparently firewood buyers are real DIVA's as he put it. Anyway, I walked away with perfectly sized and seasoned oak and cherry wood for free. Cant get much more affordable than that.
So it may be worth asking your resources if these sizes exist in their piles as well..
