Wheelbarrow Planter  This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for a wheelbarrow planter. Wheelbarrow Planter  This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for a garden wheelbarrow planter.
Wheelbarrow Planter, Old Fashioned  This project will build a Lawn Wheelbarrow Planter fashioned from a 100-year-old design we found in a 1902 Sears and Roebuck catalogue. Wheelbarrow, 16th Century  It is not entirely clear when wheel barrows came into common usage, but they appear in European art by the 13th century. Total wood requirements = 199 million x 10,800 pounds = 2.1 trillion pounds or 430 million cords.
One acre of woodland can produce about 1 cord of wood annually (very conservative) - need 430 million acres.
Same farmland currently serves about 16 million drivers on ethanol, not counting energy inputs and soil depletion. Of course, all this is theoretical - wood gasification requires skilled, hands-on operation. I love the way you've worked thru the math, but you're being really conservative in the estimates of yield per acre.
Get inspired to build with these wood pallet project ideas, including an outdoor loveseat and an easily movable table.
Use upcycled free materials to create the one-of-a-kind projects in Wood Pallet Projects (Fox Chapel Publishing, 2013).
Pallets offer a great opportunity to obtain free materials for little or (usually) no money, and this fact alone makes them worth considering as a resource. Some pallets are even stamped with a 1-800 phone number or website that lets you know about the pallet’s origins.
Even if a pallet was clean and dry and safe on the day it was manufactured, it could have been exposed to undesirable bacteria sometime during its lifetime. The answers to these questions, in aggregate, will determine which pallets are worth your time and effort. Wood pallets come in all shapes and sizes, and depending on where you live, you will encounter pallets of many different dimensions. An enterprising Mom took some pallets home from work and used them to create an accent wall in her living room. This outdoor loveseat is the perfect mix of fun and fashionable, with a funky back pattern and cushions and pillows in refined colors. Paint and stack a few pallets and you have a new wood pallet coffee table for your family room.

I used pallets as temporary flooring in my straw bale basement, solar panel shed and woodshed. So far, I only knew about wooden pallets as a bad thing, and this was mainly due to their unhygienic issues in transportation. I am gradually removing pallet fencing tied together with bailing twine; using most of it for fire wood.
Dealing with screw nails I have found if I do not plan to use the 2x4 I cut them between the boards grind the heads off then bend the 2x4 sideways to put the pry under then the nails pull from the board. I use pallet timber for making worm farms, compost bins, chook sheds, pet enclosures and around the garden. Don't forget one of the best uses of pallets for gardeners is to turn them on edge, set them edge to edge to form as large a rectangle as desired and use the enclosure as a compost bin, they're very effective. At MOTHER EARTH NEWS, we are dedicated to conserving our planet's natural resources while helping you conserve your financial resources. Once upon a time, wood stove safety may actually have been (as so many people claim it still is) a matter of using plain old common sense.

Much of the controversy centers on the fact that safe stove installation and operation are often either inefficient or inconvenient (or both!). Because of the chance of such fires, it's imperative that any supposedly airtight stove which is "throttled" (to extend its burning time) actually be sound and well-sealed.
You see, if there's a small flow of oxygen to the smoldering creosote, the O2 will accumulate until enough is present to allow the chimney's coating to flash. All new stoves approved by the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) meet standards of soundness and engineering, but secondhand units often suffer from deterioration .
Moreover, when your wood stove's body is set at least 18 inches above a flammable floor (or even if the framework supporting this surface can burn), line the floor—both under and near the heater—with 24-gauge sheet metal. Of course, the positioning of your stove will determine the amount of stovepipe necessary to connect it to your chimney. However, beyond the obvious danger of someone's being burned by the hot metal surface, there are two other basic hazards connected with using an extended stovepipe.
And then there's the question of whether the heater's draft is adversely affected by a long stovepipe.
The uninsulated stovepipe should clear all flammable objects by the same distances suggested for stoves in the tables of clearances. You will need the SketchUp software to download this drawing and its freely available online. The Chinese had wheel barrows much earlier, though their design put the wheel under the cargo box instead of in front of it.

A cord is 128 cu ft, and a 2 ft diameter tree, 30 feet high is 378 cu ft ( I know, a trunk is tapered, but we're not even counting the branches and small scrap). Author and craftsmen Chris Gleason uses sound woodworking techniques and trendy designs in his crafts.
They may use the pallets repeatedly, or the supplier might pick up the pallets and reimburse them for returning them. Chances are that the pallet you’re working with is safe, but what if it was treated with some kind of chemical earlier in its life?
Sometimes I will only take one board from a pallet, as I don’t have infinite time and energy to spend on tasks that only offer a marginal yield.
In North America, for example, some common pallet sizes include 48" x 48" (about 1200 x 1200mm), 48" x 20" (about 1200 x 500mm), and 36" x 36" (about 900 x 900mm). Occasionally, I’ll come across a pallet that features really pretty wood, but the nails are just torture to remove. In this case, I usually just cut off the cracked portion so I have a clean end to start with. Finer tasks like pulling nails are often most easily accomplished on a bench, whereas larger-scale tasks like tearing apart pallets will probably occur with the pallet on the ground.
Bolt a set of large casters (they look to be about 4" [102mm] in diameter to me) to the bottom of a pallet, and you’ve got an instant, low-to-the ground, easily movable table. I used to work maintenance for my university and would sometimes take pallets for bonfires. Also use them as compost bins, enclosure for my pigs which prepared an orchard area for me 2 years in a row, enclosure for my woodshed and now using some as a snow fence for my new superberry orchard. That's why we want you to save money and trees by subscribing through our earth-friendly automatic renewal savings plan.
But—before you assume that your knowledge of campfires and fireplaces will carry you through the installation and use of one of today's complex airtight heaters—consider the fact that not even the "experts" can agree about just what precautionary steps prudent wood burning should involve.
And despite the fact that a compromise between absolute safety and 100% efficiency is often necessary, no one can tell you what margin of safety (at the expense of what degree of efficiency) you should choose. Your best defense against a raging chimney blaze is to close up the stove and thus shut off the smokestack's oxygen supply. That ignition will quickly consume all the available air, and the fire will expire again until the oxygen reaccumulates.
First, as the pipe's length increases, so does the possibility that its joints will break during a chimney fire.
You see, the heat of the flue gases is dissipated through the metal, and this does reduce the thermal draft effect . They use a neat little Chofu Wood Fired-Hot tub heater -No electricity require to heat the water. The general public will never accept the mess and hassle of burning wood, either in their homes or their cars.
Here in rural western Oregon, softwood goes for $170 to over $200 a cord and hard wood $180 to over $225. In this excerpt, learn how to scavenge for wood pallets and find wood pallet project ideas that you can incorporate inside and outside your home. So before you help yourself to what you think may be free, remember that if you don’t have permission it could also be viewed as theft. I’ve also been emailed with a story in which someone got a nasty sliver from a pallet that introduced infection, requiring hospitalization.
You may not have a premium use for all of the wood, due to damaged pieces, odd sizes, or the presence of way too many nails in a given spot.
In Europe, common sizes include 1200 x 1000mm (about 48" x 40"), 800 x 1200mm (about 30" x 48"), and 600 x 400mm (about 20" x 15").

Spiral nails are good for constructing pallets, but can create a challenge for someone who is actually trying to remove the nails to get at usable lumber. This approach is neat because the polished nail heads gleam nicely and recall the wood’s origins as a humble pallet. In this case, cutting out the largest nail-free sections of wood possible is the best decision.
So, if you got all of the nails out of the obvious places, you can generally feel fine about sending a board through a planer, jointer, or table saw. The rough, weathered quality of the wood on this pallet makes it ideally suited for outdoor use. She used construction adhesive and a nail gun to attach the pallets, and then anchored the TV to a stud. By paying with a credit card, you save an additional $5 and get 6 issues of MOTHER EARTH NEWS for only $12.00 (USA only).
However, once you understand the problems and the alternatives involved in achieving the best compromise, you should be well equipped to make such decisions yourself. However, if your stove has any leaks around its door(s) or damper—or through the body of the stove itself—you can create a disastrous situation by attempting to starve a chimney fire. Repeated flashing—which can happen as often as several times per second—has been known to break apart stovepipe and even masonry chimneys! However, it's generally accepted that every four feet of pipe (up to about 12 feet) that's exposed to inside air space will yield about 10% "bonus" heat from a stove. It's also possible to use insulated factory-built chimney (with clearances as specified by the manufacturer), but—if you do so—you'll lose much of the heat you would have gained from the stovepipe.
Not all drawings have the measurements displayed but you can use the measurement tool in SketchUp to easily and accurately determine the dimensions of each lumber part. Most drawings do not have instructions, its assumed you can build it based on the completed drawing provided. Green wood is cheaper in the spring, but it has to dry over the summer to be useable in fall and winter.The National Forests have been logged out and the wood is coming from private lands. The great thing about pallets, however, is it doesn’t matter what shape or size they come in, as long as you can harvest wood of the dimensions you need from them. It may mean settling for shorter lengths of wood than you’d ideally like, but it will allow you to work safely with the material. It could be a perfect way to transport garden or yard tools around the backyard as you do some mulching or pruning. For every ton of wood in a forest of young, growing trees, a ton of oxygen is produced and just as much carbon dioxide is absorbed. Someone in charge of the operation using them wanted to charge me with theft of property and all these other chargers.
Picking a StoveFar too few consumers know just how important it is to choose a stove of the right capacity for the area to be heated. While it's true that we can't power our massive trucking industry with biomass, it's possible that we could provide more than enough wood for passenger vehicles in this country, even with conservative forest management. Now the ethanol farmland could fuel up to 55 million drivers, versus the 16 million it does now. This latter approach usually means cutting around the nail-infested areas and harvesting shorter, but still useful, lengths. If you need larger pieces, find a pallet that will allow you to harvest them more easily, and save the short pieces for another day. Fortunately my supervisor called him out on it, especially since I didn't take them from the property. After all, wood heaters are anything but inexpensive in these days of energy consciousness, and financial pressures often force many folks to opt for a small unit .
For the farms I think the number is really conservative, I bet a determined farmer could have yields of 2-3 cords per acre easily, far surpassing the fuel output of the cornfields.
When the last "old growth tree is harvested, the first of the new plantings is ready for harvest. Wood Stove Installation Your first concern when installing a wood stove is to maintain safe clearances.
The trade-off (as well as the point where one effect overwhelms the other) is an uncertain one. Follow the specifications in the accompanying tables, and—if you have a limited space for your stove—use suitable thermal barriers to safely reduce the clearance distances. And, since the generally recognized safety standards for wood stove installation are based upon normal operaing temperatures (with comfortable margins for error), it's possible for an overheated firebox to ignite walls or other flammable materials which are beyond the "safe" perimeter. But, MOTHER EARTH NEWS hopes that—because of the harmful effects of asbestos—conscientious readers will opt for steel and an adequate air space.
Unfortunately, although the dangers of an underfired heater are less obvious than those of an overfired one, they are equally serious.Since most owners of large stoves will often reduce the output of their heaters by restricting the air supply with a damper—a technique that reduces burn efficiency, makes more smoke, and forms creosote rapidly—buying a stove that's too large for your needs can be the indirect cause of chimney fires.
In fact, such accidents have been known to happen within the first week after the installation of a new stove and chimney.
