The History of Lake Wylie, South Carolina

The lake was first created in 1904 when the Catawba Power Company built the Catawba Dam and Power Plant in nearby India Hook, South Carolina. The dam impounded the Catawba River, so the lake was originally named Lake Catawba. 

At the time of the dam’s construction, W. Gil Wylie was serving as the president of the Catawba Power Company. Originally a doctor and surgeon, later in life Wylie became interested in engineering and the process of converting water into electricity. In 1905 the Catawba Power Company became part of the Southern Power Company.

The Southern Power Company raised the level of the dam in 1924 and built the new Catawba Hydroelectric Station to replace the original. This new facility increased the surface area of Lake Catawba from 668 acres to a whopping 13,400 acres. The Southern Power Company later merged with Duke Power Company in 1927. 

In October of 1960, the lake was renamed Lake Wylie in honor of W. Gil Wylie, one of the founders of the original Catawba Power Company that created the lake. 

Today, Lake Wylie is a popular destination for the residents of nearby Charlotte, Fort Mill, Rock Hill, Gastonia, and more. Whether it’s fishing, boating, paddleboarding, or kayaking, Lake Wylie is the perfect place to relax and have fun with family and friends. 

Speaking of relaxing—is there anything more delightful than spending time with your loved ones around a good fire? And whether it’s an indoor fireplace, outdoor fire pit, or cooking with wood on the grill, you won’t find anything better than Cutting Edge’s legendary kiln dried firewood

Why is Cutting Edge’s Kiln Dried Firewood the Best in Lake Wylie? 

If you live around Lake Wylie or frequently travel there, you may be tempted to use green or seasoned wood in your fireplace or outdoor fire pit. But most people don’t realize that fallen wood is high in moisture, meaning the fire will be super smoky and likely lead to a build up of creosote in your fireplace (which over time can be extremely dangerous). Also, using seasoned wood could mean bringing mold or pests into your home.

Instead, for the best quality wood, fire, and customer service, try Cutting Edge’s premium, kiln dried firewood. So what exactly makes our wood so good? 

For starters, all our firewood has gone through a rigorous kiln drying process. What does that mean, you ask? When firewood is kiln dried, it’s placed inside an oven-like drying kiln in which moisture is extracted from its pores. As a result, the wood is not only easier to light, it also burns cleaner, hotter, brighter, and with less smoke. No risk of mold or pests—just top-quality firewood or cooking wood

If you have ever struggled to get a fire to start, if you’ve wondered why your fire was so smoky or so smelly, then it’s because you were not using quality wood. Cutting Edge Firewood is consistently the best, you won’t be disappointed.

In addition to our best-in-class firewood, folks love Cutting Edge because of our super-easy delivery process and remarkable customer service.

Each box comes with 4 Excelsior fire starters, 4 pieces of heart pine, several pieces of kindling, a box of cigar matches (you’ll only need one match for each fire), and enough wood for 2-4 fires. Since our boxes are easy to carry and ship quickly, it’s no wonder they’re one of our most popular delivery options.

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.

I had given this Company a low rating yesterday… And with in minutes they proved me wrong. Claudia called and was able to resolve my concerns, and restored my faith. 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!!! Thank you Cutting Edge for showing my family that you appreciate our business!

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.
