I like to cover the top of the stacks right after stacking. Keeping the rain off sure helps speed drying. I have the woodshed full for this year and...
Due to Butternut canker we have burned a lot. Very light after it's dry. Burns fast and sparks when first added to hot coals.
One other family burns full time on our road. We have a couple part timers that burn now and then.
What ever comes off the splitter. Like to keep them 8" or close but not any larger than 10". Small rounds get split in half.
I've noticed the folks up the road slow down and scope my place out when they come by. They like to see what the old man is up to. When I was younger...
My guess would be crabapple. We have a crabapple on our property that is a match.
Sounds like everyone made out on that deal. Fine looking shed and the price was right.
Sounds like you have worked out a good plan. Any process that saves the back is a plus. I know what you mean about splitting giving you extra time to...
I would start with $1200.00. If you can wait until Fall it should sell.
Great start especially with the heat to contend with. I see you stack and cover, time to think about a woodshed.
Yes, my old 20ton Husky.
It's going to be stacked as soon as it cools off. I have room on my homemade pallets and will cover with tin.
Had help yesterday splitting river birch. Never had split any river birch and was suprised how stringy. The first piece off the stump was really bad...
Beautiful stuff for sure. I make the inside back of wall cabinets with box elder. If you keep it out of the light it will keep it's color for years.
I built mine out of salvaged material also. Makes the finished product looked used so it blends in better with the older sheds.
I finished the shed last month, then the heat wave hit so it's not full. Working on filling it up a little at a time.[ATTACH]
Looks like Flowering Dogwood.
Bugs may have moved in after the tree was dead. Leave the bottom few feet blocked up in the woods for the summer and the termites will be gone by...
Good you got some firewood. I burn some cherry and like it. Seasons fast and produces good heat. We've had several come down the past few years and...
That is the kind I love. No limbs and straight, easy to split.
Great start to a good looking shed. Dry firewood that's easy to get to makes it all worthwhile.
When my tree guy calls he always thinks I'll turn him down because of my stockpile of firewood. I take whatever is offered in the way of wood. Never...
I've got more to split and stack but in this weather it won't get done. I waited until after supper and walked down to the wood lot and turned around...
Two years covered is plenty for walnut. I burn it during the day when I'm home, good heat little ash.
Nice pile-o-wood. With 18 acres of woods you should never run out. What type of stove do you have?
Treated yellow pine from the deck my Son tore out. As turnovers go the firewood in the right of the photo is spruce that fell over.
Had some of the old deck lumber left over from the woodshed project so I made two pallets. One is 48X72 and the other is 40X72. Get them leveled up...
That would be beech. Great for firewood and seasons faster than oak.
Pine and spruce keeps the shop warm. I've burned both for over 40 winters and no problems.
I can back you up on this one. I was the guy that shot 5 bull moose with a .22 and cut them up with a pen knife while you were going by on the river.
