You must have hidden the laser transit before you snapped those pictures.

Very meticulous stacks. Be proud of what you have done. They almost look too nice to burn.
Real nice job Dex, I must have missed this thread when you first started it, I too am feeling like MasterMech, you need to cut back on the pellets and go all out on wood. Can't wait for you to come over and stack mine like that for me. Definitly "Hillbilly" stacking going on around here!
Nice work you've done there. Must be great to have so much space to work with.
I only have a little bit (less than a face cord) of Hedge. My Buddies place has a few in the tree lines between the fields, but I can only take what he wants gone/out. Which isn't much
But some is better than none
Awesome. Your place is a wood burners dream.
I too end up stacking my rounds, but for me it's because i don't have much room.
I end up handling each piece about 6-7 times before its burned.
I can not get the full size pics to load, I'd love to see them being somewhat ocd myself
If you click on them, they should come up Full Size.
I prefer to Post "Full Image" but is frowned upon, do to some peoples slow connection speeds.
Dude, I hate you.
You have some awesome stacks there Dexter! A ton of hard work and some serious engineering to get them so perfect! I'm sorry to hear about your buddy Oscar. I can tell he loved helping you out!
you have just raised the bar. I feel like a complete armature now!!.......something to aim towards next year....nice work, and enjoy!
Oscar was my buddy. He will surely be missed
Thank you and welcome to the Forums... This place doesn't take long to get to your inner OCD and make everything PERFECT!! LOL
DD, those are not wood stacks, but art. and sorry about Oscar. Man's best friend for sure.
AMAZING....... (and I thought I was OCD) :0
You guys beat me to it.
Nice work, Dex!
I've got log envy.
Very nice. Well done. One question.... I noticed you have plastic covering the end of the stacks. Why not leave that open to get even more air circulation?
It is one solid piece and its only 5 mil plastic. So that allows me more staples to hold the plastic down throughout the Winter
Also, it was mainly Ash there, and it had been cut/split/stacked for about 2 years (some Silver Maple, Some Locust). It was pretty well dry by then, and because I didn't cover it farther down? I was trying to protect as much as possible. But I mainly did it for Tue strength against the wind. More staples = Better chance at making it.
I used Tarps last year and they failed miserably It was a Failure of Epic proportions. This plastic was thinner, but held in more spots and lasted the entire Winter. I also took a couple tolls of Duct tape and walked around each stack at the top (not pictured) to help keep the plastic from flapping real bad. I was very impressed. Next year I will be using Wider material to cover more of the sides.
No you guys have got it all wrong - the wood piles are only half way through the process, before he takes his ice cream scoop to whittle the six cord down to pellet size.
That's a Purdy stack. Nice.
Thanks for sharing all of those beautiful pictures. You have given us something to shoot for. I liked them so much I looked at them twice.
Great thread, thanks Dexter. I suspect I'll be going this route next summer.
Glad you checked into it..
Well worth it. IMO
I was going to say great looking dog as well...sorry to hear he is gone. Made me wish I could pet my Shepard again...next
to the coy dog I grew up with, he was the best dog I have ever owned.
