    Been hard at work past 4 weeks or so cutting, hauling, moving around 4 cord of outside stacks into the shelter then stacking 6-7 more cords outside the shelter. Been a long road but I feel great about it.. Of course pics or it never happened ;)

    That's impressive, Ray! :cool:
    Looks like some White Ash there, then what else you got? What is the stuff with the light and dark splotchy bark?

    It takes a lot of work to get to that point. I stack mine the same way, Two rows to a pallet with a walk way in between pallet. IMG_20130413_145922.jpg

    The great feeling you get when you go for a stroll by the wood stacks says it all ;)

    You use a Laser to get them so straight ?

    If you're done, withdraws kick in . LOL :)

    I have seen much straighter stacks here. My goal is that the stacks don't fall down and so far have withstood a blizzard and hurricane plus numerous Noreaster's..

    I harvested 3 cords of oak and cherry near and here.. Bought 3 cords C\S\D.. Have a good wood guy and managed to get 2+ bark free cords of dry locust plus ash.. Quite a few people have gotten wood from him and are happy with it.. Gotta stick with a good wood guy!

    That's just darn pretty Ray. I'm usually close to that point by this time of year but have lots to split. Doesn't help that I've cut twice as much the last 2 winters than I ever had before. I don't have many addictions but this one's major.

    Ray, looks good.
    How did you install the drip edge on the front of your shed? I.e. I am ok with the sides (over felt) and rear (under felt), but I am confused on how to install the drip edge on the front? Do I install over the felt and over a first layer of shingle, and then add a 2nd shingle on top? (Haven't been able to find how to install when bothe the front and back are open)

    I think its a good goal to have all your next winters wood all set at this time. My sister and I are debating the pros and cons of moving piles around. If you have a shed structure or permanent cover theres no way around the rotation. But this is a good timeframe for myself to be wrapping it up. May 3rd is usually apple blossom full throttle. I guess by the time you quit using the woodstove. Also to correspond with grass cutting.
    Ray, are you ahead of things? at this time or is this your usual timeframe?

    Processing wood even if its only stacking is labor intensive. Like picking strawberries, theres no machine that will do it for you. Every split in all those piles are moved one at a time, like bricks. Fruits of industriousness.
    I know one thing, stacking is good for the waistline. And the bat wings. lol. Not chicken wings.
    Good work there in those pics Ray. I know how much work is involved.
