Wood I? You bet I would! After 35 years of wood firing if I learned anything at all it is look after your wood supply. I always made a point of having my wood prepared, split and stacked long before I even thought about making pots. Actually wood prep helps you to start thinking about the pots without rushing in. Our plans are to build our woodie this April and so a source of good dry wood was found and waiting for surgery from Mr. Stihl. It's a good mix of dry hard wood so we'll have the Btu's to paint the pots with some white heat.
