---The wood is placed in such a way that it keeps the glass-fronted door of a wood-burning stove from closing entirely. But hey, it almost closed, and it would have been fixed before the wood was actually lit.....
--There is an incredibly helpful and observant child in the house, who passing by said situation decided to pull the handle down on said door, causing the said wood to make contact with said glass.....
Resulting in a popping sound, which although muffled, was nevertheless ominous enough to cause immediate discovery of the fact that the glass on the door was splintered.
The good news:
---The glass stayed in the door, and there were no splinters out and about on the hearth to worry about.
--We didn't need a fire that day.
--It only took a couple of days to get it fixed, and the incident did not take place in the dead of winter or the middle of a quarantine.
Yeah, in a case like this, glass and wood don't mix. Don't try this at home. :)
