Rated 5 out of 5áby momof4stl Multi purpose log rack and tool holder
The log rack holds a lot of wood with out taking up a lot of space. The tools are heavy duty and made well. The set is worth every penny. You will never have to buy another one! It also looks nice and I've gotten complements on it. We also use it to hang the children's snow gear from and it dries in no time.

Rated 5 out of 5áby momof4stl Exceeds my expectations!
I purchased the Hearthside fireplace set with tools. The set is high quality and will last a lifetime. The tools are heavy duty and feel nice in your hand. The welding job is top notch. It is so nice to purchase something that you know will last. The set is worth every penny. You won't be disappointed. You are also supporting american jobs!

Looks great, very simple to put together but as someone else said the kindling rack does not work for kindling wood. The bars are way too far apart. Too bad.

Rated 5 out of 5áby PuppyWuppyLover Another great L.L. Bean product
My husband and I purchased the rack without the tool attachment and we are extremely satisfied thus far. It's high quality and has a beautiful finish to it. This product is made in the USA by another manufacturer but has the same quality and attention to detail you would expect from any L.L. Bean product - even has little rubber feet so the legs don't scratch the floor.
It's extremely easy to put together; I think it took my husband about five minutes including the time to open the box. The only tool needed is a hex, which is included.
If I were looking for something to critique I would say that we wish this came in a version with a smaller kindling rack at the top. Since we have a wood stove we don't use as much kindling as a fireplace user and we would rather have an extra few inches of space for larger pieces of wood. But again, that's if I were looking for something to critique.
As for another reviewer's comment re: this not being for outdoor use. It clearly says that in capital letters in the information in the package :-) If you use this product as designed I think it would last for years and years to come!

Rated 2 out of 5áby CONNmom Not for use outside
We bought this for our outdoor fire place and it rusted almost immediately. It doesn't say anywhere in the description that it is for indoor use only. I'm sure it's fine for inside, but don't use it outside.

Rated 4 out of 5áby ccorcora Hearthside Wood Rack great, but.......
We were given the Hearthside Wood Rack as a gift. It is very sturdy and we really like it except the top bar is not really designed for kindling. We expected the LLBean fatwood to fit on the top rack, but the bars are too far apart.
It would be great if LLBean sold an "accessory" that would let you store the LLBean fatwood on the top rack.
We would buy this again, but some of the photos are misleading as it really can't hold the LLBean fatwood.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Chipbott Does what it's made to do.....
So simple to put together, took me about 5 minutes. The bottom spot for the newspaper was designed before newspapers started to shrink so a piece of cardboard is needed to support the paper. The bristles on the broom needed a trim as they were hitting the ground when hung from the supplied support. All in all, a good sturdy product that should last for many many years.

Rated 4 out of 5áby speeps Very functional log rack
Easy to assemble. Good size - holds enough wood for 3 days of fires in my wood stove. Has a handy section below the wood for storing newspapers. However our local paper has scaled down the page size that they fall through. Had to put a support across the newspaper holder. Tools well made and look great hanging on the end.

Rated 5 out of 5áby mearph Good Quality
This is excellent quality as expected from LL Bean and Enclume. It looks great and functions perfectly. It looks so nice next to my woodstove. One thing to note is that I was a little worried that the little broom might not be so great bc it looked more aestetic than functional. But, the good thing is it works great and sweeps up the little wood pieces very well.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Xenon Delighted
I chose this wood rack after looking at many of them, and I'm delighted. It's handsome, sturdy, functional and very easy to assemble. The division of the rack into 3 areas for paper, logs and kindling is especially useful. I heat my house with a woodstove, and this rack stores plenty of logs -- most others I looked at didn't.
