    i'm a stacking some unseasoned wood in a shead. the shead has concrete floors. would it be better to stack the wood directly on the concrete slab or to stack it in the shead on pallets. just wondering

    Pallets are better, but right on the slab is OK if it stays dry.

    Pallets will allow more air to circulate, which will hasten drying.

    Pallets would be a PITA to walk on compared to a nice smooth concrete slab. I usually have some low grade wood that I put down for the first course so I don't care that it isn't quite as dry as the stuff above it. The bottom course also tends to keep the insects happy.
