After three years seasoning, my 'wood cubes' of Red Oak are ready to burn this season. This is what they looked like right after stacking. They're a lot darker now. I'll be sure to post photos before I start dismantling these. That's a little over 2 cords in those three 'cubes'. We are rolling in Poplar here, as a result of the violent weather of Summer 2012. I'll be burning a fair amount of that as well. I like to mix Poplar and Oak so I get good coaling for restarts. The two photos above will give you some idea of the firewood that came raining down on us that summer. This big boy was somewhere around 30in diameter on some of the bigger cookies you see here. My little 18in Homelite saw was just about enough to get the job done. A longer bar would have been nice.
