Waiter Brings Firewood Up From Basement
"It takes the mess out of handling firewood," says Brent Fowler, Lennoxville, Quebec, about his new "Woodwaiter" firewood carrier that installs next to fireplaces or wood stoves and brings wood up from a cellar or basement.
The Woodwaiter consists of a small box designed to handle 16-in. long firewood, carrying it up from the basement riding on a track from the basement. The box comes up through a hole in the floor next to the fireplace where it can be conveniently unloaded. A trap door can be installed so the wood remains below the floor and out of sight. Or the Woodwaiter can remain above the floor.
"Our cellar stairs are very awkward so my wife also uses our Woodwaiter to move her jams and jellies and other goods to the cellar," notes Fowler.
The Woodwaiter is controlled by a foot-operated switch. It can be set to rise to any convenient loading height. It runs quietly, powered by a 110-volt, 1/4-hp. motor and can be installed easily by the do-it-yourselfer.
The Woodwaiter sells for $679 to $1,062, depending on the style of box and the distance of the lift.
