    It's weird I've had those roaches come out form under the bark of trees I just dropped and started bucking. They have these real cool tunnels eaten into the tree, usually at points of earlier damage to the tree. I've about a cord of red oak I split and stacked in single rows on pallets about 2 years ago and this past September I noticed the bark comming off some of the top splits as it often does with oak and when I pealed the loose bark from the splits, the little buggers went scurrying every place.!!! Only once have I actually found them in wood I've brought in to burn. They did not get active until the split got hot, then it was too late for them. Like Cheach and Chong, Up In Smoke! Just don't want to chance it.

    Good looking insert man. Looked into that one pretty heavily.

    That sounds like a good plan. I made mine with casters. Invest in good caster. I had to replace the first set I bought.

    Rubbermaid bin for the longer pieces and a couple of trash cans sorted into (1) N/S splits + short uglies and (2) kindling.

    Not likely to be of much help for your situation, but I store wood in the ovens :) I can get 24 hours worth in the middle oven and keep all the fire starters and tools in the top.

    I don't get to keep my wood in the living room like some of you do. It's in the basement laundry room. Maybe if I upgraded from a Rubbermaid bin and a couple of trash cans, the wood supply might be invited to a more luxurious location! Worth a try.

    Dragging that wood upstairs every day? You're way more energetic than I!
