Just a bit of work for tomorrow. Take a guess as to how much I'll post back when I'm done.

Gnarly challenge to guess how much gnarly wood there...I say around a cord. I hope you have a splitter!
Sweet, looks like fun & a good variety.
Some of the rounds are gonna give the husky a work out.
I say 1.5 cord.
I see some good stuff in there. Oak, cherry, norway maple, ash, elm.......all good stuff!
lots of nice knots and knurls in that norway, you're gonna have some fun with the splitting and stacking of that! but it's good BTU's
Should be fun.... Hope it goes well
Definitely some good wood there but it also looks like you have some trimming to complete before bucking it. Trim it right and it won't be such a problem.
Someday you need to take pictures on trimming a log before bucking to show how to get better rounds & splits.
I do mine with limbs cut flush & parallel & in line with the log. I forget to take pictures & think about it after the logs are bucked & loaded up.
We definitely all need a masterclass on trimming. I got a lot of gnarly stuff recently, and have cut it short to make splitting easier.
Now I wonder if there might be an easier way without buying a splitter (I use a sledge and wedge/wood grenade here).
Forgot to mention.......... nice score there....
renting a splitter!
I was thinking that too Dave because some had asked this before. If I remember this winter....and if I'm able to cut at all...
Well with all the great weather i didnt get done as much as i wanted. But i am putting up some pics so you can guess again if you want.
Nice work looks like a mix of woods.
With all this nice weather? That means you should be done. Doesn't it? Or did you go hunting or golfing or .........
