    Got a new stove this summer, and started burning N/S. I had to shorten my ENTIRE supply (5+cords). I go out each Sunday and shorten a weeks worth of wood. It doesnt take long at all. I had SO MANY cut-offs, that I had to start giving them away, I bring 'em to work and give 'em to a guy that has a fireplace and burns pretty green wood -- he loves 'em. i'd suppose theyre pretty good for BBQ, too. :)

    Could just set the logs on top of a pallet or something so the bar doesn't hit the dirt. I just have an 18" bar on my saw and it's not bad for bending.

    Similar problem--I'm using a regular 5 gal pail (originally for drywall mud, paint, etc), which is just about 15" in depth. I can fit about 5 or so splits in there at a time. Works great. But that's a mighty fine lookin' milk crate, I'd use that if I could find one...
