Nothing is added. Fatwood
comes from the stumps of Longleaf Yellow Pine, and is
found in the core of the stump where the pitch (that golden
goo you find on pine cones) moves into the tree to keep
it healthy and bug free. Our fatwood comes from Honduras,
from managed forests that are grown for lumber. When the
remaining stumps are harvested, three trees are planted
for each stump removed. Managed forests are planned out
fifty or more years in growing cycles, with growth at
all stages ongoing. As a renewable resource for kindling
it is almost perfect. The Longleaf is not a “rain
forest” tree, but all trees need to be cherished
and sustained to ensure clean air and a viable eco-system.
You will find fatwood
in many of our basket presentations, along with Fire Drops™,
Kindle Cups™, Flamedance™ Color Cones (for
great colored flames in the fire) Kindle Cones, and waxed
Starter Cones. Among the starters are natural cones, and
everything smells like cinnamon. as we use essential cinnamon
oil on the cones and in the wax.
That’s Right! We
are the factory. We take the raw materials and wax them,
scent them, and create the basket. We also make our own
crates, although we leave basket-weaving to defter hands.
So, if you want something really special, bigger, or in
certain colors (from those pictured above), just e-mail
or call. If you can imagine it, with our components, we
can build it for you. We will also add a gift card if
you request it, and send it directly to the recipient
for you. No extra handling charge.
hope you find something here that will tickle your fancy.
