    I've seen pictures of round hay bale type stacks here before and finally decided that I want to try one. What is used to elevate it? Pallets? What is the diameter?
    They are wicked cool looking.
    Thanks

    Search for Holz Hausen.

    I just put some pallets and disposable wood at the bottom. One key is that the wider you make it, the easier it will be to make. Here are two of mine:

    I just built this holz hausen this morning. It's kind of small, but fit perfectly on the lid to my dry-well close to the house. What I like about holz hausens is that you fill the interior with all the odd unstackable pieces, like a basket.

    I use 4 pallets as a base and make an 8' diameter bottom. Never put a tarp on top.

    Thanks to all.
    Do the splits take longer to season this way?

    Right, I'm also skeptical.

    I actually made a little chimney so that the holz could be covered and yet still have air flow. It was a fun idea, but it probably didn't make much difference.

    HA! That's funny! It really looks like a "hausen" now.

    When you see smoke coming from that little "chimney", you'd have reason to worry then!!

    I think I'll stick to plans of one day starting a wood shed. :) They do look interesting though.
