    Some white oak and some red oak. Got quite a bit more to go but so far im ahead of what Ive burned so far this year and maybe ahead of what ill burn all year if the weather stays mild like its been. Oh well guess this will just have to dry for 2-3 years.

    Don't worry about the friends, worry about keeping warm.

    Yup. How soon they will understand when the power goes out and you are nice and toasty with nothing to worry about. You would think the monthly heating bills and free exercise routine would get them to take notice, but....

    White and red oak? For sure I would not burn it for 3 years! Oak really hates to give up its moisture. A few say 2 years and maybe in some locations that would be fine but I would not think so for your location. Stack that stuff out in the wind and forget about it for a few years.

    Logs.jpg I love wood days. Here's a before pic of logs I had to cut up. Buddies came by with beer and I forgot to take the after but the long stuff was all done and about half the shorter rounds where cut to size. I love that saw!

    DTrain, just looking at that saw makes me tired. I used one of those way too much and don't want to do any more of it.

    It's a magic tool. It cuts wood, makes beer, and dinner taste better, make the chair and bed feel like the best place on the planet. By the time I can't run it, I'm hoping my son will be big enough to take over!

    Wow, I'm inspired....just got my new chainsaw and wheel barrow about 2 hours ago. I'll be working on next years supply tomorrow

    I'm gonna have to look into a cross cut saw like that one. That looks like some good excersize, and think about it fellas....how thin the kerf on that cut is.......you're not wasting NEARLY as much wood on a cut as you would a chainsaw!!:p

    Is that saw a vintage one, DTrain, or is it a modern one? Do you sharpen/set the teeth on it yourself?

    That's it, I'm gonna start creeping the net for a vintage one........
