Shop-made Logs

Even a benchtop planer produces more shavings than one knows what to do with. I tried giving them away as animal bedding but now use them to make my own “logs.” I lay a sheet of newspaper on my bench or work table, pile on the shavings and roll it into a tight sausage. After three or more layers of newspaper, my “log” is ready for the fireplace.
