Cut gathered logs into disks 3 inches thick. This project required about 50 disks, equivalent to roughly 12 to 13 feet of wood. Eucalyptus was chosen due to its light color.
Prep Piece of Plywood
Cut a piece of plywood to fit inside the firebox, and give it two coats of black paint in a matte finish. Let dry completely.
Attach The Faux Logs
Arrange the disks on the board to fit together tightly—remember, they should appear stacked. Secure each with wood glue and let dry. Then use a nail gun to secure the disks to the board from the back. Place the finished front inside the firebox. You can tuck the panel behind a fireplace curtain screen or make a kickstand support from a triangular piece of wood if needed.
