    I've started on holz #3, which will be 10 feet in diameter.

    The standard design involves orienting the center pieces of wood vertically (on end). I guess the idea is that this promotes vertical air flow.

    But this time I'm just going to toss the wood into the interior. This is where I put the irregular pieces, and I'm not convinced that with the low air flow speeds, the helter skelter arrangement will slow things down.

    What do you think?

    I try to keep the interior design splits verticle for the bottom 2/3rds. After that its just toss them in for the remaining top third. The top tends to narrow as I get towards the end .

    Al, I'm also on HH #3 which is also going to be about 10' in diameter (at the base).

    For the first 2, I stacked the centers vertically on end but for this one I chose to toss scraps and irregular pieces as you are planning to do. Obviously, I think your plans for your third holz hausen are perfect. :)

    I'm about half way done with mine. Here's a pic:
