Tyvec sounds like a good idea. Will it hold up for one season? Much cheaper than tarps

Tyvek does not hold up in the sun and wind very well. I would use something else unless it is free.
Yer a hand splitting madman, love the stacking job, I need racks and posts. Looks like you have a nice supply of pallets also, I need to find some.
I didn't use the tyvec for long I switched to some rubber roof stuff I found. I don't cover the wood for the first year also. And I get pallets whenever I want from my supply house at work also I mow part time at an industrial lot and they a whole dumpster full always of the big long oak ones.
That's a nice supply going there!
I slit old school also but I will never stack that nicely, good job. Just my 2 cents but, tarps suck! They leak tare and degrade in the sun. I like the rubber roofing idea. good luck in whatever you choose.
YEs it has. an it's growing everyday im going all out as much as i can get this year. just cut another good size maple down today.
We ARE the wood Borg. The wood WILL be assimilated.
Can't beat the ones that fall in a parking lot for you.
Yeah. It is nice this is at my dads church. This is the second one I've taken down. And there's still about 7 more to cut all going right In the parking lot. Makes very easy loading.
The empire is really growing now. keep gettin wood! im getting some really big stuff lately and its looking like a 460 may be on order here pretty quick.
eco, you are a working fool. I like that.
That extra properly seasoned wood your gonna feed that stove of yours this winter is going to really make your stove preform above all expectations. Good work. Your payback is coming.
Looks great, keep on working until the body says rest.
Thank you. I really do love the work involved. My neighbor from across the way came over and said i could use the splitter if i wanted and i said thanks for the offer but i love hand splitting. defiantly looking forward to the really really seasoned wood this year. starting off with some 3 year old oak and maple and some ugly chunks.
Your BKs mouth is now watering and preparing itself to do some very slow digestion to savor it.
The Lopi Liberty is chewing through some ugly chunks of beech,cherry and maple. Burning down some coals at the moment then load up some cherry, looks like 36 for the lows the next two nights then in the 50's to 60's through Saturday in the day. Not a drop of rain in the forecast.
I have started burning yet I usually wait till novemeber. I love this weather. 60's in the house is just the way I like it.
trying to get organized i have had wood all over the place. trying to make some sense of it now. makin some progress
took dennis's advice this year and stacked at 4 1/2 feet. much more stable
Stacks look good Eco. Will the splits go from the stacks directly to the stove or stop in the shed first?
Eco nice work, the stacks look great and just remember all that wood needs stacking before the snow hits the ground. ;-)
Last year I left about two cord piled up in the front yard over the winter, promised myself I would never do that again.
that stuff will go to the shed in 2 years to be burned. Some of it in three years like the oak and crap. Some longer as I plan on gettin 4 years ahead
