    Take a look at the cord calculators in the stickies and get out your tape measure - that will give you an exact number

    A cord is 128 cubic feet. Take your length in feet, take you width in feet, and your height of that pile in feet, and multiply them together. Then divide by 128 to find out how many cord are there.

    If the stacks are 4' tall then you have very close to 4 cord in three rows deep

    Three at the most. Stack is not four feet high, IMHO.

    Since we're guessing, I'll guess 3.
    Tell us all the dimensions and you'll get the same answer from most of us.:cool:

    What is the prize for guessing correctly?

    I'll say 4.25. Had it been 4 rows wide, closer to 5.25.

    Either way, its NEVER ENOUGH! Try to get three years ahead, then you can relax!!

    I don't think relax is part of the vocabulary for most on here Scotty - even those of us beyond 3yrs ahead. Maybe a little "less obsessed" would be a better term :)
