I do not live in a place where I can burn wood now but when I did live out in the country I had some questions about keeping a fire. 1 How do you pile or stack a wood pile where it is safe to be around? 2 Can a blind person use a wood splitter, and are there better ones for us to use? I have heard of gas and electric powered ones.I have also tried to use an ax, a sledge and wedges but that was too hard to mess with. 3 do they make a universal wood grate that you can place in a fire place or a wood stove that will help you stack the kindling woods and biger logs for building a fire? when I use to build a fire I would place small kindling wood on the bottom and place the logs on top with paper all through the stack, but it was hell starting a good fire. I know also that I really didn't have good hard wood to burn either. Just some pine logs for the main fire and some scraps from furniture factorys for kindling.
