I've been wondering about this. I have loads of ivy and some large trees down covered in the stuff so I'll be cutting it off whilst logging the trees.See that thick ivy stem ? if you cut a bit off it and split it, that'll dry out well and it makes a great hearth board for a firebow
At what size does it become useful? I have some ivy stems probably 6" diameter but most around 3". Would that make a good hearth and does ivy split or does it need sawing?
Also, is there any demand for it? Not to sell but if I have several boards made up I could pass them onto someone who uses them.
