    Got a nice load of free rounds of white and red oak, hickory and black birch. Split it over the weekend. We put that little 5 ton electric splitter to work. Definitely better than hand splitting.

    It looks right-side up to me. Maybe I am in Austrailia.

    Mine has been right side up from the git-go. Must be my iPad or something.

    Jags, thanks for straightening it out for the rest of the crowd. Wish I could figure out how my ipad shows both mine and yours perfectly upright.

    Now why didn't I think if that? Wait...it just self rights the page...

    I think bogydave is right. I'll put up thumbnails the next time and see how that works.

    This wood was real wet. I'm letting it dry in the pile a couple more day before I stack it. It's in the windiest spot for now. Had a few rounds that smelled like an Italian Deli when we split them. Was red oak, I believe, but it had a cheesy odor that was not unpleasant in the least.

    Get it stacked off the ground in a single row
    or double row with some space between the rows for a year.
    I'd separate the oak & season it for 3 years in your area.

    Bogydave. I am doing single rows in the places that get the most wind/breezes during the year. The oak will be dried at least two years, and three if I have enough other wood not to use it sooner. I put the wood up on raised racks for a while. You can see one in the back of the pile. Then I use pressure treated landscape lumber to set them up on. They are only off the ground a few inches at that point and I intend to season the splits fully there.

    I am trying to figure out a way to make a woodshed that either won't "P" off the neighbors, and won't need me to get a building permit. I might be stuck with having the stacks run along the property lines, though.
