    Way too many. I can come over and relieve you of some of that burdensome wood.

    Nice scrounging. Stacks don't have to be perfect to look nice.

    Pics #2 and 3 are definitely beech, however I don't believe that first pic to be oak....I don't see any defined medulary rays or annual rings in the wood. Looks more like a cottonwood or poplar to me.

    Give it a split and sniff test it. Red oak will have a distinct vinegar smell to it.....
    show me a pic of the split......

    Correct, no rings that I saw, I'll look again and sniff my wood while trying to ensure no neighbors are looking. :p
