Well, this is the second season for our wood burning insert, and I am just now getting to the point where I can start stocking wood for the future seasons. I am sure I will have to purchase some wood this winter, but my plan is to be 3-4 seasons ahead. Once I get a little more serious, I am going to need a better saw. I finally got done bucking these logs that came from a tree that fell on our neighbors house. This is only a small portion of the actual tree, and some of the rounds were nearly 24" in diameter. It was everything my little chainsaw had to get through the bigger stuff. Here are some of the bigger rounds. I didn't think my saw was going to make it through some of this stuff. Some are not the prettiest cuts... but they are cut! I have no idea how I am going to split thing... thing. Here is my little wood stack. I need to restack the splits on the left. I can't say too much, since my 7 and 5 year olds stacked it for me while I split it. These are going to be interesting to burn this year. They are the off-fall from rail road ties. A local company lets you come and pick up the small stuff (on the left) for free, and the bigger stuff (on the right) for $20 a truck load. It is all oak, and is about 8" square on the end. The stuff you buy ranges from 14" long to 36" long. I just figured I should share my humble beginnings.
