    I added to my initial 1/2 cord stack. I'm shooting for being able to burn this water oak in 11/12 thus the wide spacing (and also to be able to get my lawn mower between the stacks). The shadows cast on the side of the stacks were at 4pm this after noon (Feb 20th) so the stacks should be getting plenty of sunshine on the end grain along with good ventilation. Early autumn / late summer I may cover the tops with some old sheets of tin.

    The stacks are 12' long x 4' tall (except for the far right one that is 4'+). The wood is mostly 16" and medium to small size...think I'll make it for 11/12?

    All very nice, lots of good advice. I also keep the round side up, whether in the middle of the pile or on the end.
