10E2132: 12 Hours On Wood Etiquette From Norway

Did you hear about this 12-hour doc shown in Norway last week on wood splitting/stacking/burning etiquette and techniques. How it got people all fired up. Really split the audience - over bark-side facing questions. I'd like to log a complaint about the horrible puns in the ensuing media coverage...

That sound of dry logs clattering over each other is so nostalgic... You can watch a 2-hour version of the recent broadcast here; this does not include the 8-hour fireplace shot that some felt a little excessive... Music, folklore and a lot of Husqvarna orange involved. Meditative I'd say.

The program was inspired by the book “Solid Wood: All About Chopping, Drying and Stacking Wood — and the Soul of Wood-Burning” - watch this profile of the author Lars Mytting.
