    When I started cutting last year we never planned on a wood stove so I cut the length 16 inches. We decided in April we would purchase a wood stove (Liberty) if I want to take 1 inch off because I think it will load better for an all night burn what would be the easy way, everything is all ready split.

    I did load east/west the other night when it dropped to 34 and had some nice coals the next morning to start the fire.

    If I had to just take one inch off all of my splits, I'd set up a chop/miter/radial arm saw and just cut them off right before they go into the stove.

    It's a good woodstove, I will still be able to load it for the overnight burn without any problems. Rake the coals to the front and load the wood to the back and it will be fine. Smokinj, I'll have some pictures for Tuesday night of some Beech thats down(good size.) It's up in the area I call the bowl.

    I load my liberty east west, If I load north south it burns hotter and faster. I have most of my wood cut to 20 to 22 in, with the shorter pieces i just mix them in to fit. I would never recut all the wood,just make do with what you have.
