Good morning! Today’s Wayne Hunter the Wood Cutter’s Craft Link Tuesday link is to “Ken Wingard’s DIY Photos on Wood”, which is found by clicking here. These photos wood look great, and have a nice Alaskan touch, on nice pieces of birch!

        We thank our wonderful friend Karen Burget for sharing this link with us!

        If you make or have made one of these and would like to share a photo of it, we’d enjoy seeing it! Please share your craft photo in a comment or by messaging us.


        Two articles are in today’s Fairbanks Daily News-Miner about burning firewood and are available online:

        The first is titled “Fairbanks-Area Residents Asked to Monitor Smokestacks, Refrain from Open Burning as State Air Quality Rules Start” – click here to read it, if you’d like.

        The second is about last night’s Borough Assembly meeting titled “Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly Adds Money to Stove Changeout Program” – click here to read it, if you’d like.

        If you know a Fairbanks North Star Borough firewood burning widow age sixty or over, please be sure to let her know that she is welcome to receive a free annual cord of Wayne Hunter the Wood Cutter’s split, green 100% birch firewood.

        No purchase is necessary to receive this firewood. Here’s a link to more information, if you’re interested

        Now is a great time to get local widows their firewood so that it can have time to *season for next winter’s burning.

        By letting these widows know about their free firewood, you are taking part in helping them save money and stay warm, which, in our area of Alaska can literally be life saving things to do. Thank you to those of you who share this information for caring about our local widows heart emoticon!

        To order, call us at (907)-488-WHWC, send us a message through our Facebook page, or e-mail WayneHuntertheWoodCutter(at)yahoo(dot)com.

*With proper storage, under normal weather conditions this spring and summer, the firewood can season enough in the warm months to burn cleanly next winter (here’s a link with more information about this from the Cold Climate Housing Research Center
