    The weather is warming up, and I'm about done processing wood until next
    fall.

    Twenty-three and one-half pallets of wood. Six to seven feet high. 95% hand split.
    Should be good for a couple of years. I've got a mixture of oak, elm, mulberry,
    locust, apple, and maple. About half of the wood was processed this year.
    I've got a few pallets of firewood stacked at my woodlot which are
    waiting to be brought over by that little black trailer and my VW Golf TDI.

    They aren't the prettiest stacks, but the Isle Royale doesn't seem to mind.

    What is that, about 15 cord?

    Probably, although that would give me three heating seasons, and I promised my wife I would only
    transfer two seasons worth from the woodlot to our house. To be conservative, I figure a cord per
    two pallets. Anything over that is gravy.

    Wow, those are some tall stacks!

    I'm having the first 2.5 cords of a 5 cord order delivered tomorrow afternoon. Not sure how tall my stacks will be, but I hope we don't have to go all the way to 6+ feet high!

    In my woodshed I stack 9 feet high but on pallets I only go 4 feet.

    Here's a slightly different side view with more detail. Not that great with a digital camera.

    How come your pictures aren't as neat as some. Yours look like mine. Some people must file down the edges.

    Try as I might, I cannot make mine as even as Highbeam. He must have one heck of a big belt sander. His almost looks like it's just printed on paper. Hmmm.... maybe it is?

    I blame my kindergarten teacher who told me it was all right to color outside the lines. :)

    Hey NW - if you start to get splitter withdraws , feel free to jump on down a bit. I still got a heck of a pile to split up. Some needs bucking too. I'll supply the beer and ribs. :coolsmile:

    That sounds like a lot more fun if we use Jag's powered splitter than my yellow-handled maul. :)
