Tom's Firewood Carrier

$30.00

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.

Description

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.

I don't even have a fireplace

I bought this because of a suggestion on the forums that it can be useful for toting unusually-sized/shaped items around. I expect to use it for various household projects.

Simple and useful

I used it all winter to move firewood. No issues with durability, I expect this to last many years to come. Holds enough wood to to build a fire in my fireplace. The handles are also comfortable.

Couldn't be simpler, (probably) couldn't be better

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.

Fabulously strong

Like all Tom Bihn products , this one looks great and functions perfectly. No need to buy another in six months to replace a frayed one.
