Building a fire? That’s no joke. So, make it worth your while and employ a vintage fire grate. Meant for holding your wood (the way an andiron might), used fireplace grates are shaped like a basket with legs, so your fire wood’s sure to get a full bake—or, said another way: your fire’s not going out until the wood’s out. And as any fire enthusiast knows, that's something to get seriously fired-up about.
