    Good idea, Goose. I'll have to try that one once the ground thaws back out again.

    Here's my start on next year. Bought this "cord" for $150 this fall. All oak and maple. Split it up over the past couple of weekends all by hand. Nice small splits for the castine. I'd say its closer to 1.2 cord. There's 100 cubic feet on the front row, probably close to 50 cubic behind it. Good deal, great wood.

    Nice stack. The closer to 1.2 cord could be one of two factors, or a combination of them - either you have a very good wood guy, or your wood volume has effectively "grown" by the fact that you split it down.

    It's worth noting that in general, splitting wood into smaller peices makes it take up more room, so it's entirely possible that simply splitting your wood caused it to grow significantly (Note guys, this only applies to FIREWOOD! %-P (figured I had to get the first shot at the bad jokes....))
