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.

As far as TB products go, this is as simple a thing as there is: fabric and handles. It does exactly what it's supposed to though, and does it well. Firewood goes from one place to another. Once I bring in a bunch, it can stay in the carrier on the hearth and look great. Maybe the next version of the carrier will have an impressive array of pockets and straps, but I don't really see how this could be better.

My husband found Tom's Firewood Carrier in his stocking. Since he cooks on his Lang offset smoker as often as possible this Firewood Carrier has already been put to work moving cooking wood from the garage to the Lang. This handy carrier has made a huge positive difference in setting up the fire and keeping it going. It holds just the right amount of wood.

This makes it really easy to grab loads of wood when it’s snowy out and harder to use a cart. Really sturdy and well made.
