Looks like someone made a decent start but wisely changed their minds part way through the job.
You can attempt to build a fire on it, but beware of root fires.
I see a whole lota smokin comin on.
You're right about the quality of the wood; it has a beautiful interior, but finding a large chunk without knots...
Your work is probably going to be on 'American Roadshow'. Problem is, I don't want to wait the eighty years just to see it. Pictures?
Hey, it seems I may have your avatar :)
Pardon my thoughts here but if that were in my neighbourhood (and the wood was good hardwood) I would seriously consider it. Think of it; you're...
Probably with salt or tabasco.
That kebob needs seasoning.
What, too soon?
I hope your friend has a speedy recovery. I have prayed that he can endure physio and that he regains full use of his leg.
The seller will re-check to see if he mis-typed his contact info :rolleyes:
I've often heard that the corner of Portage & Main is a special place to be in the middle of February >>
Mine was about half that size, but the biggest I"d ever seen.
I wonder if the raccoon that lives in the hole comes with it.
!!! How big was the nest?
Also has the look of locust to me, but my specie ID skills are not top notch
Could be dry. Oak seasons very quickly in the round. :rolleyes:
Hey Pat, welcome to the Hearth.

If it's free, I'd take it (unless you...
Found these on your Hartford CL:
Check your CL ads for free pallets. They are dry and partly processed. Stack nice too! Just gotta watch for the nails.
This can also be used to determine what species can be found in our local neighbourhoods. Also a good tool for tree ID....
Did a reno on my house last year (the sunroom that my stove heats) and in the process i removed a paper wasp nest that entered at the top of the 1st...
And I would be right behind you. No, wait a minute... _g
Maybe it's because good hardwood is a little more scarce up here, but I would jump on that one (if it were nearby). Looks like it will fall clear of...
The weather did save you for sure. Glad you escaped!
Wasps really become active this time of year (when the sun is out and it warms up), and they...
I'm going to avoid the temptation to delve into innuendo (as mentioned in the previous post) but longer wood make for more stable stacks.
Does it bear 6-12 cm green fruit that drop and make a mess of your driveway/yard? It may be the same tree.
Might have been what is referred to around here as a 'yard bird'. Lotsa knots and twists in the grain that make splitting tougher.
Ciao Luigi. Come stai? A belated welcome to the Hearth!
Oak takes longer to cure, about twice as long as most other hardwood given the same...
Most excellent PP. The only thing that would have made this score better would be if it happened to me :p
Nice. Apple almost always comes in the form of shorts & uglies, but is useful for smoking and gives the fire a pleasant aroma.
Thistle, do you...
