Kind of curious if anyone knows how much freshly cut and split firewood will shrink as it drys. I never noticed this before and I guess there could be lots of variables in this. But whats the average, 10%, 20%. If I have some 20" fresh Oak splits will they shrink to 19"? In that thread about the Holzhausen they say to put a mark on your pole at 80%, and when the wood is ready you will see the mark. If you have a 8' pole 80% is 6.4. That seems like alot of shrinkage?
