I'm soon going to have a Jotul Castine stove installed, along with two cords of good, seasoned hardwood delivered. I've burned wood before, but not for a while. Can anyone please suggest a cost effective (cheap) way to set up my wood for storing outside? I live in Massachusetts so snow and rain are definite issues. Would getting some wood pallets work well, as far as keeping the wood off the ground? Then cover the wood loosely with a tarp? Also, is a maul and a wedge or two a good basic setup for splitting logs and rounds? Any special kind of maul or modern gizmo wedges to buy over others? Thanks very much.
