    Ok I know I used this as my avatar but I'm new here and figured I'd post it anyway.

    Oh, since the wifes patience with scattered piles of splits is short and my yard space is limited -
    is it wrong to stack it 6 feet deep and 6 feet high?
    (about 40 long)

    That is a stack for sure! 6x6x40...looks like a little over 11 cords to me! If you have it stacked 6' deep and tall, it may take a little more time to season the logs in the center - but what ever works and fits the yard!

    Well your no stranger to wood stock , Your just standing on your "money in the bank"

    I stack 6' high 20' long and 16' deep ( up to 22' deep) in my main finished pile and its in the sun full time and two years minimum to dry and a lot of air flow .

    It a crime to stack less than 6 ft, it's just a waste of space.

    Hand split? What's that? LOL

    Tried that when I first started with my stove. Had a tree guy dump 36" rounds without knowing what I was in for.
    Sledge, Maul, Axe, Huge pry bar and a heck of a lot of heavy breathing.
    Mega back pain, stuck wedges, and a whole lot of #$@!% swear words later....

    ...ta da! Brand new splitter was on the way!

    Life sure has been good ever since.

    I only split by hand when I have too. I am looking into splitters now. I'm thinking American or Timberwolfe

    Nice pile, smart move with the splitter. Saves the back.

    What stove do you burn?

    I've used the small timberwolf - excellent machine but a little pricey
