I decided to make a holz hausen today out of some unstacked splits. It is pretty pathetic both in size and quality. I knew I didn't have a large quantity of splits available so I started with a smallish base. I'd say it is no more than 4' in diameter. I did put it in the upper yard in case any neighbors recognize it for what it is. I think one this size made it harder as there wasn't as much space on the inner diameter to rest the inner end of the split. It made my inner portion grow taller faster and I had to keep adding sidways splits along the outer circumference to keep the right angle. I am a bit dissapointed in my results but at least I got the wood stacked somehow!
