    Excellent. Now you will receive much enjoyment every time you look at that pile. Only a man who has cut the wood can get that enjoyment and you've earned it.

    Well, I hate to say this, but your wood is all stacked the wrong way. Its supposed to be stacked with the bark down. A lot of yours is the opposite. You better pull it apart and re-stack it or it will never dry.


    LOL, just kidding, nice pile. what is that, maple? :)

    yeah that is my garden. heres some pictures of some progress ive been making. Theres about a little less than a cord behind that unsplit stuff as well i still have to stack and then probably just shy of a cord left to split and still have probably at least a half or more cord of wood still in the woods i gotta get.

    ecocavalier, the big problem with stacking wood that high is frost heave. The darned frost can make the wood tip one way or the other and even wind will have some effect. Better to stack not so high and not have to restack it after it falls over. I've found 4' or lower works best. Normally I'll stack about 4 1/2' high. Stacking it in the spring at that height will usually result in the stack being 4' or lower come fall. Of course it depends upon what wood you have as to how much that stack will shrink. This is or can be another problem with stacking really high. When the wood shrinks, that could cause some shifting of the wood in spots which might tend to make the row a bit tippy.

    Good luck.

    I se what ur saying and am sure it could be a problem. But havent had any problems the past few years ive been doin it. I kinda have to make the best of room i have on my property. This is why i want to build some stable racks for next year so i dont have to worry every time i get done stacking, wondering if itll fAll or not.

    Yeah it feels good lookin at it all especially when people ask did you do that all by yourself? And hand split people say I'm nuts. Especially my wife. But I love doing it.

    I agree on the feeling good. It is a great feeling indeed and only those who have done it themselves can truly understand it. Nice work. So you're nuts! Stay that way. Life is too short to be sane.
