    Holy crap jpl! :bug: Your trying to catch Eric Johnson aren't you? Looks like you will have no problem feeding the Woodstock Keystone for the next 10 years or so. :lol:

    Here are a few pics from the spring of my stacks, and a pile of locust in the driveway. I've got two more stacks not shown, one is currently empty to make room for some construction. The long irregular stack is on a lower terrace level in the backyard that's otherwise pretty useless. We planted the Leyland Cypress trees you see in the middle a few years ago, which was sort of a pain last year when I started using that area for my "overflow" stack as I expanded from storing about 5 cords to storing 9 at one point. I probably have 7 stacked right now.

    Can you show any other pics of your splitter? Is it a factory made one? can you tell me the details please? as I'm doing a bit of research before having one made, they are twice the price here in the UK / Ireland that they are in the USA ;-( yours looks like one that will last a life time, my sort of value ;-)

    Great pic of your wood pile, keep gathering it'll never go wrong.

    Cheers

    LOL, Eric's is all split and stacked though I believe, and he's at least 10 cords ahead of me anyway. I've been trying to clean up the lying dead within reasonable hauling distance before it rots. Yeah, I'm problably pushing 6 or 7 years ahead but if that dead wood is going to produce CO2, then better to have it happen producing heat in the Keystone rather than just rotting. That's my excuse for excessive amounts of time in the woods with the dogs cutting wood. ;-)

    just over 5 cords in both stacks....probably close to 4 cords in that pile for next winter. I will stack it as I use the wood this fall/winter

    These are the only two pictures I can add. For some reason this site always gives me trouble uploading pics. It always tells me its either to big or to many pixels. So I will keep croping the picture down to size so when I finally get it right it will then tell me its not a valid file type??? How do you guys post those nice large pictures without any trouble??? By the way...nice wood all!!!

    That's really nice, Hansson. I drove all over rural Sweden and Finland in late May and I didn't see any firewood stacked up around houses or farms like you do in this country. I saw lots of logging activity and piles of biomass (waiting to be chipped, I guess), but no split firewood. Do most people burn pellets or chips these days?

    Beautiful stacks, by the way.

    What I lack in beauty, I make up for in volume.

    The beauty is in the burning, I guess.

    Those are a couple of old pics. I actually have more back there right now. I won't be done until my wife has to squeeze between the woodpile and the clothesline to hang the clothes out to dry.

    Between health problems and constant rain since the first of April I am way behind. I have only stacked a cord of oak and 3/4 cord of pine and poplar so far this year. Luckily I busted hiney last year and so I have this six cord stack of oak left over for this coming winter.

    I just hit 4.5 cord and have some softwood stuff that has been drying in 16 inch logs for 4 years to split. Probably another cord and a half. Then I start on the real wood!!! Oak will be processed for next year!!!

    My pile of wood after delivery - stacking just begun in the distance. 4 cord dropped, about one stacked at this point. Its seasoning nicely in this 90 degree heat.

    This coming winter will be my first full season of heating primarily with wood. I've got about 4.5 cords ready for this year (mostly black cherry, with some oak, beech & maple).


    I've attached a couple of shots.
