I've burned Pignut and Shagbark seasoned 16 months and more.
I get the best coals in the morning....huge clinkers.....some still resemble the shape...
My neighbor dropped off some logs with his Kabota last week. (Hurricane Sandy) Ash and Red Maple
The Oak rounds came from my BIL's neighbor who had a...
Shagbark for Sure, Young Shag Bark can have baby smooth bark.
High winds took this puppy down.
My saw cut it like butter.
hey it's good to see my Pignut picture flout'in around
Red Oak is nicknamed piss oak. You'll smell that from miles away until it's cured.
The growth rings look wide, and the bark looks way too thick for Hickory.
I'll rule out both Hickory and defiantly the maple species.
I do see a good...
I just can't wait, cleaning the chimney soon.
Gonna clean it up and wait for a cold night.
Nothing pretty, built out of scrap wood 10 years ago.
Holds just shy of 4 cord.

Bottom Left Hickory
Bottom Right Cherry
A total mix this year. The single row stack is a mix of Spruce, Red Maple, Sugar Maple, Sweet Gum, Cherry and Ash.
Th big stack has a 1/2 row of 5...
Just some pics of my stacks, such a dry summer.......
I like your avatar.........I'd recognize my woodstack anywhere.
Such a mild winter, here are some left overs, I also have almost 2 face cords of Old Hickory up back I didn't have to tap into.
I only used about...
Ain't nothing like Ash Poles.....
My BIL had a guy over clearing some brush with his tractor.
I downed 2 Ash and had him drag'em out.....easy.
I have sugar bush all the way up my 400' driveway and the bark looks nothing like Ralph's photos.
His tree is either Elm or a Hybridized Hickory....
I love placing Hickory Bark on a hot bed of coals and letting a little puff from the Oslo into the room.
Wrong about it not being Sugar/Hard Maple ?
I'll post some pictures this weekend, the bark just doesn't match up.
I still say some sort of Elm...
Your Oslo must be cat top loader, otherwise if it's a newer version with burn tubes, I'd check the top oval plate, smoke should not puff out.
That's the way to do it, play your guitars on your MTV.
I loaded a massive Pignut 3 year old half round into the Oslo the other night, I should have...
Indeed I see Shagbark too the Left
Looks like Elm species on the right to me.
I can tell ya that your samples are not:
Ash, Blk Birch, Cherry, Blk Birch, Ash
The Birch will make you thirsty just buy smelling it.
I'm having a hard time ID'ing that wood.
I've never run stuff like that through my splitter.
I have a Sweet Gum Tree in my yard and the bark and...
I just used a few !
This Spruce has been dying from the ground up at the rate of 10' a year. I'm surprised Hurricane Irene didn't snap it off onto my power lines.
Looks like you need the correct adapter, assuming you've got the correct flat ceiling support box and good clearances.
It's an easy fix assuming the...
Nice trailer and good stash of free wood, HL is good stuff also......
