Nice pics - thanks.
It was dry here, too. (I'm just East of Maine.) The wood I cut this spring for winter 2013-2014 could be ready for this winter....
...But you will.... Oh, yes, you will....
I'm with you. I don't think there is much reality in "reality tv".
I've told my kids dozens of times, "Remember - every tv show is only about 1...
I get beech and yellow birch that sometimes get nasty like that.
But I'm no good at guessing what your wood is.

(I use the back end of the...
Yes, you can burn it this year. Split each piece if you can.
I'm still cutting some poplar that I'll burn this coming winter.
If you can cover the...
Can he stack?
...Sounds like one of us!
Interesting to see the angled pieces (to fit the stack against the shed braces).
It was my solution in my shed, too, to a problem I hadn't thought...
That's a Paul Bunyan tree!
I agrree! That should make your back feel better!
Super shed. Thanks for posting the pics.
