Using a woodburning stove effectively is both an art and a science.

  • Information on accessories such as heat fans and temperature gauges
  • Tips for cleaning stove glass
  • Uses for wood ash.

The Log Book also includes: flu temperature gauges, heat fans, stacking logs, vent burners and much more.

"As a long-term woodburner owner I thought I'd learned all there was to know about them. I was wrong, Will Roll's excellent book taught me much more about the fine art of burning wood and getting the most from our prized possession. Highly recommended."
