    I pretty sure this is pig nut. Most people on a nice fresh log think they have struck gold. Once they figure out what it takes they will be calling.

    That pick makes it look pretty straight but its not. Home owner has tried to sell it for the last year. I say the same thing everyone that tries to sell it to me. I dont pay for wood but if I ever do it will need to be stacked. ;)

    I stop taking b.s. after my first 12 cords in 2006. (Burnt ever stick in one season) 6 years and 72 cords later (Thats just my take) Not counting at-least another 35 cords for friends and family members.. I am quick to leave them my phone number and let them know if things change give me a call. ;)
