How To Make Firewood Bundles With 2 Cents Of Twine And A Stick: An Updated Guide


Greetings, fellow homesteaders! It’s been a while since I’ve shared an update on my firewood business, so I thought I’d take the time to share with you how I’ve improved my process for making firewood bundles. As you may recall, I previously shared with you how I was able to make firewood bundles with just two cents of twine and a stick. Since then, I’ve made some improvements to my process that I wanted to share with you. Without further ado, let’s dive right in!

The Firewood Bundles

First things first, I cut my sticks on a table saw to make them more uniform. This not only makes the bundles look nicer, but it also makes them easier to stack. Additionally, I made a rack to prevent wood from rolling all over the place, making my bundle-making process quicker and more efficient.

I still use a heavy-duty baling twine that holds 240 pounds of strength. I’ve found this twine to be incredibly durable and reliable. When tying my bundles, I use the square knot to prevent them from slipping out. This ensures that my customers receive their firewood as ordered, without any complaints of cut-off bundles.

The Video Update

I’m excited to say that I now have a video demonstrating how to make these bundles with my updated process. The video not only shows my updated process but also highlights the improvements I’ve made to my firewood stand. I’m pleased to say that I’ve had no issues with theft and have been enjoying solid sales.

  1. How many sticks do you use for each bundle?
  • It depends on the size of the sticks, but I typically use 10-12 sticks per bundle.
  1. Do you offer different sizes of firewood bundles?
  • Yes, I offer both small and large bundles to accommodate the varying needs of my customers.
  1. How long does it typically take you to make a bundle?
  • With my updated process, I can now make a bundle in less than a minute.
  1. Do you have any tips for preventing twine from tangling while making bundles?
  • I find it helpful to keep the twine in a bucket or container with a lid to prevent it from getting tangled. Additionally, I use a knife to cut the twine rather than tearing it with my hands, which can also cause tangling.
  1. What type of wood do you use for your firewood bundles?
  • I typically use hardwood such as oak or maple, as it burns longer and hotter than softwood.
