Wood burning will be of enormous interest especially the way wood burning stoves are progressing with more decorative work being required. The general focus is to allow craftsmen to develop wonderful looking wood burning stoves for all occasions.
Abilities within our Association are varied, ranging from the novice to the highly skilled. Indeed some of our members have won prizes at National Wood Burning Events.
CAW extends a warm welcome to all wood Burners. If you are a prospective new member or a member of another wood burning club or association who is in the area on business or on holiday, please drop in (free of charge) and meet us. All we ask is that you notify us in advance so that we can supply you with dates, times and venues of our meetings as well as any directions you may require.
With winter well on the way, I'm sure most of you will be well into woodburner season now! We're lighting ours most evening and throughout the day at the weekend, and there is nothing quite like it. The warm fire makes the house such a welcoming place. One of the downsides is fetching the logs. However, there is an alternative to normal logs. LSPS offer heat logs and wood briquettes for sale which are clean to handle and easy to light. They are also smoke free, with no spitting or sparks, give a high amount of heat and low amount of ash, so most energy goes into the fire and the heat, not the waste product. They're made from the waste products of environmentally friendly saw mills, and have a low moisture content so they burn better and more efficiently than ordinary logs. For more details about wood briquettes and heatlogs, check out the LSPS website.
