One more sentence I think is bizarre.
Tipped from the third-floor balcony, a massive chest of drawers plummeted and smashed to kindling on the second balcony
Besides "tipped" which I don't know if it it is the easier way to express to throw, my problem is at the use of kindling, here. I don't know what can mean in this context.
Any help very appreciated.
Kindling is what you use to set fire. People often use small pieces of dry would for this purpose. So this is what it means in this context - very small pieces of wood.
PS: Sorry for doubling. I'll leave it, because it contains one piece of information that is not present in Gillnetter's post, i.e. that kindling does not have to be wood necessarily.
