Too many others that it could be given your marketing area. I quit.
And I gave you a BIG hint.
OK then, how is Steve doing then? :lol: But technically he is up the river so I don't guess it is him.
You were correct, you should quit. By the way, what is the BIGGEST river you have been down?
Jeff lives in LA. I thought you were talkin local, darn it.
He also has a house a few blocks down from billy.
Who is Jeff Mississippi? I've never heard of him.
Never bought one, wouldn't even go outta my way to get one for free. However, my last c/l score included one (see http://www.hearth.com/econtent/index.php/forums/viewthread/40468/) and since it was a nice score and the homeowner wanted to be rid of it, I took it. Held the wood from that score (less than 1/6th cord) and then some, well off the ground - but a proper pallet rack in the same space could hold more.
It's OK, Step 1 of the 12 Step Program to Admitting You're A Woodaholic is to confess to buying things like this . . . this would also include buying more than one chainsaw, buying a 27-ton woodsplitter when a 22-ton woodsplitter would work perfectly fine or buying a truck just to haul wood.
Guess I'm in the "really cheap and lazy" category . . . last year I threw down some old pallets and covered the wood with some old, blue tarps I had in my garage.
This year I'm "upgrading" with a woodshed . . . but a good portion of the wood has come out of my old camp which I tore down for the wood . . . albeit I did have to buy some wood for the rafters and base and a little bit for my front wall.
We have one of those tubular metal racks. It holds about a face cord and I keep it on the covered front porch in the winter. It holds about a week's worth of wood. The rest of the wood is on pallets, uncovered.
I have eight or nine sets of them that I bought years ago at HD at season end for seven bucks a set. I don't use them anymore since I went to using pallets. To hold the stacks up I bought a trailer load of new bed frames at a bankruptcy auction for a mattress store for five bucks. A trailer load of angle iron for five bucks wasn't a bad deal at all. Two frame rails, a piece of poly rope through the stack and I don't have stacks falling down anymore.
Last year I used a metal wood hoop. It didn't hold a weeks supply so I would have to stack more carefully on the deck to get a weeks worth of wood on my covered porch. This took a lot of time doing.
I finally went out and purchased some 4x4's and 2x4's and re-bar. I think the total cost with the brackets and paint was $30.00. I might build another one and put an extra week of wood in the garage to have a two week supply within arm's reach of the stove room.
