Wood Fire Handbook, door Vincent Thurkettle. Voor open haard en houtkachel liefhebbers. Alles wat er is te weten over stoken met hout. Houtsoorten, hout kopen, kloven, drogen, enz. Plus een hoofdstuk over het maken van een kampvuur.
This book covers everything you need to know about creating the perfect wood fire, indoors and out, including: the best woods to burn, how to split logs, how to store and season firewood, creating the perfect woodstore, how to lay and tend a fire, choosing wood for scent, cooking on an open fire, and campfires. Illustrated with a mix of line drawings and evocative photographs, this is fundamentally a practical handbook, but with plenty of gift appeal.
