When wood seasons it dries. When it dries it shrinks. So, my question is how much does it shrink and should I consider this when cutting logs? My stove can take up to 20" and I would like to aim to get pretty close to that. IF wood were to shrink say 10% and I cut at exactly 20" then I'd end up with 18" after they were all seasoned... so adding another 2" at cut time could make up for this (i.e. start at 22", shrink 10% and end up with 19.8" just right!). So how much is shrinkage? I found a wikipedia article that says it is 5-10%, but that really didn't say to what moisture content level or anything... From a practical standpoint is this anything you experienced folks even consider? Is this a complete don't care?
