    I kind of like the undercover and between 4x4s method:

    Or the in double stacked whole rounds two to three years out with metal posts at the end:

    Or sometimes when I'm in a hurry to unload:

    This last method tends to piss the wife off quite a bit.

    I stack on pallets in a single row, with steel posts seperating each cord and providing support. Wood is outside for a year with full unobstructed exposure to wind and sun, then put in my very modest woodshed for a year or two before burning. The wood in the second pic will have an extra year to season to make up for being against the barn. We ended up restacking once last summer after a very dramatic wind event, pic 3.

    on the left, I used staked and screwed 2x4's, not as strong as on the right where I used "post-ups" and 4x4, but the post ups are like 12 bucks each. each row rests on preassure treated 2x4's so they dont sit on the ground.

    This was mine in mid September, these rows are 30' long, I got 2 more cord split and stacked for next year, next to these stacks. I don't think we've burned a half a cord yet, but she is running all this weekend with highs in the 40's.

    Before I built my woodshed, I always had my wood stacked outdoors. I see a lot of people use pallets but around here they want money for them and I can't see paying for something that sits on the ground to rot. I would just go back in the bush and gather up deadfalls. I'd lay down a lenghtwise couse spaced out to allow airflow. Then I would build a floor of crosswise laid deadfall on top of that. The good wood would get stacked on top of that and covered with a tarp. My tarps would eventually break down and leak and then shread when it froze to the firewood so I eventually laid down lengthwise, a top course of more deadfalls and just hollowed out the pile from underneath.

    Here is a picture of my woodshed and my old tarp covered woodpile that had no wood left in it and got reused for a while storing other stuff.
