Logs are very useful if you have a wood burning stove and depending on their size and shape, can also perform a variety of other functions as well.

Small logs can be placed in the cistern of your wc to reduce the amount of water needed for flushing or glued end-to- end to make inexpensive draught excluders, rolling pins and snooker cues.  Medium size logs are ideal as exercise weights, book ends and scale models of the Giant’s Causeway, while large logs can be used as trouser ballast, residential bollards and confetti.

Very large logs are normally known as trees.
