    If my math is right, and it is still early in the morning, I get 9.8

    I'll take a crack at it too: the volume of a cylinder = pi * radius squared * height. So.... 3.14 * 20sqrd*16" = 22608cuin / 1728 ( 12*12*12) = 13cuft. 128cuft / 13cuft = 9.8 logs that are 40 inches in diameter and 16 inches long.

    If I may ask, why a 40 inch diameter? Because I have a leather bag I use for bringing wood in that when rolled out is about 40 inches long and when filled up with wood is definatly heavy.

    Just curious.

    I am REALLY STRONG!

    No, seriously... I am.

    The ring I have inside I store wood in is 40" in diameter. I use ~2 a week. Wanted to calc how much wood I would burn.
