    Here's my stacks, first 2 are the "wood shed" under the deck 6 stacks roughly 14ft long by 6"avg. Mostly split in Jan/Feb of this year with about 1 cord left from last winter.

    Second pics are the more of the Jan logs that's getting stacked for next winter. Still have about 1.3 cords not stacked that I'm trading with my neighbour. It's Jan logs that I split around Mar/Apr and we're trading since he doesn't have enuf for the winter. We just rec'd another log load to buck/split between now and Xmas, that we went halfs on, which means I'll have the 1.3 cords plus anothe ~4 cords split to stack before Xmas. I also plan on getting another Log load in Jan which should give me another 8 cords for the winter beyond. I really want ot me 2+ yrs ahead, and expect to go thru 3-4 cords per year.

    Well, I was impressed with myself until I saw your stacks! not surprised though. This is one cord, as exactly measured as I could handle.

    This pile is mostly black birch and red or black oak. It's 5' tall and 35' long with 16"-18" long splits. The last pic is me bringing the kids on a wheel barrow ride. I'm about half way with clearing the land we plan to build on. Maybe less if you consider the white pine. I'm planning on giving most of that to a friend who has a mill.

    I could put some tree stands up on the ends that are supporting the stack for turrets. This was the only way I could come up with that would keep the wood single row and get some sun. The forest is mature and lets in very little light. Behind this stack is somebody else's property. They have cleared out most of the mature timber. Currently the stack gets sun from sunrise to about noon.

    Yes you do.....those blocks are all scrap from where I work. Bundles of raw material come in chocked with those blocks. Most of the truck drivers don't want them so I collect what they leave behind.

    They bun really well once seasoned.
    The handles are just strips of plastic stapled to the wood.....I cut them off. Staples are too hard to get out so I have stapley ashes.

    We finally got a few years worth ahead. We now have about nine and a half cords and use about four a year. Next project is to get a wood shed built to store it all properly.

    I absolutely hate all of you. I have first-year wood stove syndrome... otherwise known as "Well people sell firewood, right? RIGHT?"
