Title: Log supporting apparatus

Abstract: The invention comprises a log supporting apparatus for a fireplace having three supporting legs converging upward at an angle toward one another to form a tripod. The apparatus has an upper and lower bracket fitted within the confines of the legs with the legs at 120 degree intervals about a circle and with the brackets having pins projecting outward into bores in the legs to support the legs and brackets with the legs at their inclined angle. The lower bracket is spaced above the bottom of the legs and acts to support the bottoms of the logs with the upper portions of the logs resting at an inclined angle toward one another against the upper bracket whereby ignitable material may be placed beneath the logs and the logs may be easily burned.
