Wouldn’t it be great if we had the ability to go outside of our door, chop some wood for firewood, place it in our wood burning fireplace, and then start it easily. This is something that people were able to do during the colonial period and for many years after this. Unfortunately it is something that is much harder for us to catch on to.
The fact that most of us are not able to even chop down our own firewood is the first problem that we have. Because of this there are different wood fireplace starters that have been created to help with this. The type of wood fireplace starter that you choose will depend on the type of fireplace that you have.
