    I have a big start for 2010/2011 (all the wood stacked on the right) hard work earned free. I am quite tired and will sleep good tonight.

    Beautiful. I see you are passing on the preference of bark up, split down.
    I like your braced straight ends. Usually I've got nothing on the ends of my ranks - they're just sloped up to the 4.5' height.
    Happy burning.

    Nice looking stacks. Agree with the rest about wishing I had the room to stack like that. Do you later re-split that down to size? Looks like those splits are pretty big. How long did it take to scrounge all that?

    I don't know if it's an optical illusion or if the wood shrinks more across the short side than the long, but has anyone noticed rounds split in half never look like half circles, more like half ovals?

    That's my kind of stacking too, bark side up.

    Hey just passsin thru. I thougt my buddy was a little obsessive about splittin and stackin, he like it so much he comes over and helps me with my loads. I see he's definately not alone. Personally I hate the work load, but I hate Lp prices and all the bad thingas that go along w/its use even more.

    We've stacked bark down before and I actually poured water (was fresh melted snow, ugh) out of it. It's always up for us, but if I'm lucky the woods cured enough it falls off. In that case I top the piles w/it for rain shed.

    If I keep doing wood heat (this is year 3), apparently I'm going to have to take it a all little more seriously. I'm still learning what wood I've got much less sorting it, lol.

    this all explains alot of my problems.

    Nice pix, wish I had some level grd to cube some supplies.

    Cool site, I'm gonna go post some other threads now.

    Lazy Flame, stick around and we will watch for those threads. And you may even get to liking the work that is required. Personally, I look forward to it. We do our cutting during the winter months then split and stacking comes in the Spring.

    Great looking stacks! I try to make mine look nice and neat, but if I want the wife to help I have to accept what she's willing to do - not very neat. It's typically 6 or 7 cords, so I don't complain. The more she helps the sooner I can get into the woods and start the next year's wood.

    my piles kind of look like that. Except for no two logs are the same length. I guess (or hope) that comes with practice.

    I always think WOODBUTHER's stacks looked small and wondered how he got through the winter, but I never saw them with a kid standing on them for perspective (I assumed the splits were the same size as mine . . .definitely much bigger).
