Tom's Firewood Carrier


The firewood carrier that Tom made for his dad and friends back in the mid-1970's. Made out of cotton canvas. Only available during the holidays.

Back in the mid 1970’s, I made a firewood carrier for my father and a couple extras for friends. The design was nothing new or revolutionary, but it did its job: schlepping 3-5 firewood logs from the woodshed to the hearth. 

When my father passed away in 2016, I inherited the original carrier I had made all those years before. Now, over 40 years later, I use the thing almost daily in the winter months. It’s stood the test of time thanks in part to its simplicity: it’s a simple wrap with no ends so it can accommodate longer sticks of wood; definitely not a tote bag, there’s no zippers, there's no phone pockets, no overthinking. Yes, you can put your 15" MacBook Pro in the Firewood Carrier, but we guarantee it’ll fall out, plus you might forget and toss it in the wood stove.

Darcy posted a photo of the original firewood carrier on Instagram and a few people asked us if we’d offer it someday — so here it is. Just like the original version it’s made of heavy cotton canvas — a material I’ve been re-learning recently. Cotton canvas isn’t as durable and doesn’t wear as well as the ballistic nylon and other fabrics we use, but it’s got a rustic “cabin” aesthetic and is perfect for a firewood carrier. 

You may be wondering: is this Firewood Carrier useful for carrying anything other than firewood? Answer: no.... unless what you carry in it can hold on for the ride.

Firewood Carrier- Perfect

I received the firewood carrier as a gift a couple of years ago. I can't believe how well it works getting wood from the shed into the house. It such a simple design but works perfectly getting wood into the house. I also like that fact that the wood debris that would normally fall off onto the bricks in front of the stove are now contained in the carrier, which I take directly outside and shake it off. Hopefully be able to pick another one up in December for a gift.
