Not many people realize that even a stack of wood can be turned into a beautiful artwork or decoration. Improving the interior design or the entire look of a garden is as easy as your imagination lets it. We found this impressive project which can be implemented in every dwelling. The process is fairly simple in theory. You just stack the pieces of wood that you will eventually use for heating your home in an artistic manner. The practice is a bit harder because it needs patience from you and a perseverant spirit – even if the pieces don’t stick together at first, don’t give up. There are lots of ways you can stack wood and create art in the same time. Go for the `painting` solution and place different colored wood in a way you depict a scene, just like you would in a regular canvas painting.
There are lots of interesting designs you could make, inspiring from nature, trees, animals and birds. If you want a challenge, try and make human portraits; the work of Ole Kristian Kjelling is very inspiring in this regard. Don’t stop at paintings, and try `statues` or all kind of 3-D structures, like an entire fireplace or a tall tower. If you have plenty of wood, you could do a whole house with the stacking method. And if you like to blend wood in the interior design of your home, you could always fill a hole in the wall (like an unused fireplace for example) to make the décor more rustic. Browse through the photos to inspire you in this endeavor. The more intricate the design, the harder you will have to work to achieve a nice end-product. But the results will easily impress guests and friends that see your art for the first time.
After you split firewood, you want to stack it up and store it to begin the seasoning process and prepare it for burning. Firewood should be stored for a minimum of 6 months, and during that time you want to ensure it loses as much moisture as possible by exposing it to ample sunlight and air circulation.
