A lot of experimenting with stacking the pallets over the last few years. Started with temporary brackets to hold the splits while stacking, then banded them after stacking. This was an abject failure; by the time I went to fetch them, after the wood had dried, the bands were loose as a goose and stacks went to pieces. Tried several other iterations before coming up with this method. Wood drying and shrinking rarely affects the stability of the stacks and, rather than band, I simply use two ratchet straps, one on each half of the pallet, for transport; easy enough to just pull straps a click or two tighter if they start to loosen up while being moved. The process has reduced my wood handling, the most time & energy consuming part of the process, by 75%.Thanks fo posting. Im glad to see this working out for you. I like your stacks i would hope that you will keep posting your results. The seasoning will slow as we get closer to winter, but you will see results.. please post what they are..
