The story of Lake Norman, NC

Lake Norman is a gorgeous lake and loved by many visitors and full-time residents. The lake experiences four true seasons, offering a wide variety of fun throughout the year. Local towns include Cornelius, Davidson, and Huntersville and they each provide fun entertainment, dining, and more.

This video gives a great overview of the fun memories that can be  made around Lake Norman:

Lake Norman was actually created between 1959 and 1964. It was constructed by Duke Energy and is the largest man-made body of water in North Carolina. Cowards Ford Dam is used to create hydroelectric power for the Piedmont region  of the Carolinas.

If you’re sitting around the fire and looking for some good ghost stories, Lake Norman has a few good options. For instance, Normie the Lake Norman Monster. Hundreds of people have claimed to see this mysterious creature that rivals the Loch Ness Monster.

What makes our delivery service different

Our delivery artisan service is new to Lake Norman, and we’re confident that you have never experienced anything  like it before.

First, our delivery service is complimentary. The price you see on the website is the price for delivery.

Third, we will stack the firewood into your existing firewood rack, or we’re happy to loan you our metal racks. Each rack is 2′ wide and 4′ tall. We store it inside our patent-pending metal racks that are sturdy and attractive. Once you finish using the firewood and place another order, we will remove your empty rack and replace it with a new one that is fully stacked with firewood.

The delivery is no mess and no stress for you, and obtaining firewood has never been easier.

Can I Use Locally Gathered Firewood to Heat My Lake Norman Home?

Considering that Lake Norman’s shoreline is blanketed with trees, you may feel compelled to gather and use local firewood. While locally gathered firewood may light, as well as burn, you may encounter several problems when using it to heat your Lake Norman home. Locally gathered firewood almost always has a high moisture content. It’s not uncommon for locally gathered wood to contain up to half its weight in water. All this water inhibits the wood’s combustion process, meaning it produces more emissions and less heat.

Burning locally gathered firewood in your Lake Norman home’s fireplace can lead to creosote buildup. The presence of excess moisture trapped inside the wood results in the production of more soot-filled smoke. Building a single fire with locally sourced firewood probably won’t cause any noticeable amount of creosote to accumulate inside your chimney. If you continue using it in your fireplace, though, locally sourced firewood may lead to a dangerous buildup of creosote.

Game night around the Fire

While you may think seasoned firewood is a better solution, the quality is inconsistent at best. It will still contain moisture, plus it will have bugs, mold and fungus on it.

Why Kiln Dried Firewood from Cutting Edge Offers the Best Performance

Cutting Edge Firewood delivers the best firewood available.

You can avoid the aforementioned problems by using kiln dried firewood with which to heat your Lake Norman home. Kiln dried firewood often comes from the same species of tree that are found around Lake Norman, such as oak, cherry and hickory. The difference is that kiln dried firewood undergoes a processing technique in which moisture is extracted from its pores. When firewood is kiln dried, it’s placed inside an oven-like drying kiln.

Here at Cutting Edge Firewood, our kiln dried firewood goes through the most rigorous drying process in the industry. Our wood is conditioned for 48 hours, which is 12 times longer than the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) standard. Not only does this provide a superior level of heat; it also eliminates the possibility for mold and pests. If you’re going to build fires in your Lake Norman home, there’s no substitution for Cutting Edge Firewood’s kiln dried firewood. It produces more heat and fewer emissions. Furthermore, you can rest assured knowing that kiln dried firewood doesn’t contain mold or pests.

Don’t just take our word for it, check out some of our reviews below:

They say, "you get what you pay for" and that couldn't be any truer when it comes to Cutting Edge Firewood. They offer same day delivery on boxes M-Sa, their firewood is easy to lit and it burns clean for hours, and their customer service is always top notch. Can't say enough good things about Leroy, his team and their products. If you want the best, put your worries to rest and buy from the best.

It’s so important that companies listen, and do their best to meet the needs of the customer!!! I love Cutting Edge’s product! The wood burns clean, and the product’s presentation is nice… Who said wood couldn’t be classy??!! The racks, the nice delivery personnel… A+. Claudia gets an A+ for customer recovery!!!

Absolutely the best run company imaginable! From my initial order processing to delivery of my firewood, their customer service was incredible! Daryl, the Artisan (is that not a great term or what) who delivered my firewood was the best ambassador ever for Cutting Edge Firewood. The enthusiasm and pride of the employees was evident every step if the way! I look forward to a continued relationship with all these folks.

I recently ordered from Cutting Edge Firewood for the first time. The experience was one of the best I have had in recent memory. Ashley called me shortly after my order to explain how it would be shipped and delivered and offered assistance with any questions I may have had. The wood and accessories showed up on time and perfectly packaged. The product itself is as great as the customer service. The wood is beautifully dried and smells wonderful. I also made sure to get some pizza oven cut Oak and it did not disappoint! Absolutely 100% satisfied... BRAVO!

Updated for Dec 10, 2020: The company works hard to meet customer's need. It is impossible to be perfect; however, their best efforts are way better than others. Again, their wood is way higher quality than any other seller out there that I know.‐-------------------I recently bought some firewood boxes from them. Their wood is clean and very high quality. I did not appreciate it until I tried to save some money and bought firewood from other local stores like Homedepot and Homeland. Now I have a choice, and I rather pay more for the premium quality here. They shipped fast too.

In addition to high-quality, clean burning firewood, the folks at Cutting Edge Firewood deliver best in class service. Every time. They’re responsive, on time, friendly, and grateful for every opportunity they get. Follow up is excellent with well timed and thoughtful emails to handwritten thank you notes. In an age where the art of gold standard customer service alongside quality product seems to be gone, these guys will boldly remind you its not. At least not with them. I’d give more than 5 stars if I could!

I Live in California. Based on reviews i was excited to receive my CHERRY Firewood for my fire-pit from Cutting Edge. My family and i wanted the best firewood with less smoke. great burn and scent. We opted for Cherry since it burns cooler than Hickory or Oak for the summer nights. When i inspected the firewood several had growth on them and i was not sure if it was mold. so i contacted Cutting Edge to advise. Ashley requested to text several photos and her team would take a look. The very next day i got a call from Ashley. Although her team could not narrow down exactly what was on the firewood she advised me Cutting Edge would send out a whole new Box Set -free of charge. I was NOT expecting such a quick response let alone a entire new Box Set.Cutting Edges excellent customer service and quick response alone is TOP NOTCH and gives me the confidence they stand by their products 100%. New Box was received this week with NO issues. Cutting Edge has definitely earned my business for years to come with Outstanding Customer Service along with Superior products. Will NOT hesitate recommending to all my Family and Colleagues.

Do I Need Kiln Dried Firewood in a Fire Pit?

Enjoying a great fire at the lake isn’t just about building a fire when you’re inside. As we said before, the scenic beauty of Lake Norman makes it the perfect place to enjoy a gorgeous fire.

No one does gorgeous fires quite like Cutting Edge Firewood!

Many people think that, because they don’t have to worry about creosote build-up, they can burn anything in their fire pit. This is kind of like saying Lake Norman is the same as a polluted pond near Charlotte. Yes, they’re both bodies of water and they may be called lakes, but they do not provide the same experience.

When you build a fire in the outdoors, there are several important benefits to using Cutting Edge Firewood in your fire pit:

  • The fire is much easier to light – you’ll only need one match to get the fire started.
  • The firewood produces less smoke – no one wants to have their relaxing evening at the lake interrupted by billows of dark smoke coming from their fire pit.
  • You’ll smell better – did you know that the moisture in wood is what causes that smokey smell to stick to you around the fire pit? Because our wood has such a low moisture content, the smokey smell doesn’t stick.
  • Brighter, hotter flames – Lake Norman deserves a beautiful fire, and Cutting Edge Firewood can make it happen.
  • It’s better for making s’mores!

Beyond Firewood

Here at Cutting Edge Firewood, we’re all about the total experience around the fire. Not only do we deliver the best firewood available to Lake Norman, but we can also deliver tools and accessories to make your time truly memorable.

Our fire starters enable you to light every fire with a single match. Our Fire Pits come in a complete set that makes them easy and convenient to use, plus they’re built to last a lifetime! We also can provide handcrafted designer tools like shovels, irons, or skewers for roasting marshmallows and hotdogs.

36” Elliptical on 3 Legs Steel Fire Pit Complete Set

And if you’re just after advice or want help with your fireside experience, our customer service team would love to talk with you!

We also Deliver Top Quality Cooking Wood or Smoking Chunks

If you enjoy grilling or hosting barbecues on Lake Norman, you should consider using high-quality cooking wood logs, smoking chunks, or cooking splits. The best flavors come from the best ingredients, and your fuel source is one of the most important ingredients!

When used for barbecuing, premium cooking wood will inject your food with flavorful compounds that will get people talking. Our cooking wood is used by chefs and celebrities, they love it because they know it is the best!

If you’re looking to cook pizzas inside a wood fired oven, you should know that we even offer special pizza cut firewood. We partnered with professional pizza chefs to create the perfect cut for cooking  pizzas at the right temperature.

  • Extended Burn Oak Firewood Rack

    $265.00

Once you’ve added a couple extended burn pieces, however, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your fire for a few hours.

    Remember, you will get the best experience when you start the fire with our standard cut Oak Firewood and then add the extended burn pieces.
