    I'd simply cut a cookie off the end. You can later burn those cookies. They work great for daytime and also when you don't need a full load of wood. In addition, it is easier, usually, to cut off 2" rather than cutting it in half or the other dimension.

    Yep I cut the least I can to make my 16 inch piece.
    You end up with a lot of 3 or 4 inch thick rounds. Great to burn them too.

    How deep is your stove for N/S loading? If it is more than 12"deep if you cut them in half you would have the option of loading N/S.

    Didn't bother me. I just wondered if you had originally cut the wood to long or if it was someone else.

    For my stove, I would do 12X12 cause I could load em north-south. Also, you can stack 12" long splits just fine.

    Well, just a little more word to do. At least you have the jig for doing it right.

    whenever I have the end of a log that is too long I cut it halfway and cross stack in the middle of the pile.
    Figure a few N-S loads on occasion or smaller reload will be needed when picking through

    I burned some short chunks the other day, lined em them up n/s in the stove worked out good ,like full splits
    I always cut odd length's to 17" , cuz my stove is square 18", then throw the chunks in the crates
