Ive got 120 pallets, 2 cords of rounds about 2yrs old, outside, uncovered and its pouring out today. They all soaked to the core. third straight day of rain. even my roof is leaking, I have a drip bucket set out to catch the drip. That the bad news. Good news is , I have 2 --20 ft rows of splits, dry on the outside but they were wet in first week of sept 07 , so they have high moisture content. left side row is 3 ft high & right side row is 6 ft high and I have 6 buckets full of wood in basement, like the orange plastic ones you see at home depot, 6 gal plastic. so, how do i get this stuff dry to burn for winter. Not much room around stove, only enough room to dry 1 load at a stove firing I just bought a 30 ft construction trailer to keep my wood in, and was able to get all my splits in there under cover before the rain , but that was all i had time for before rain drops kept falling on my head. I have a 12 inch diameter mini pot belly stove , for both wood &coal;, in the construction trailer too, but I just bought it used this week and it needs assembly, some parts missing too and no 6 in stack . In my mind was the idea that I could install sheet metal roofing panel heat sheilds on movable 2x4 stands , because it only 1 trailer width in there and with 2- 24 inch wood stack rows, one on each side wall. The construction site trailer i bought has an office in front that eats up the first 10 feet of the trailer, leaving 20 ft in back where the wood is. I was entertaining the idea of breaking down the partition and install the wood stove in the office with a 20 inch 120volt 3 spd box fan behind it and have it blow the heat from the stove across the sides of both wood stacks. My idea any good or waste of time and effort. what u think, any better ideas out there or improvement on ideas. %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% I was also thinking, my basement stove have a big flat top 2ftx2ft, then a step up and 1ft x2 ft I toy with idea of putting newspaper and kindling and (quanity) 2, 3, or 4 --- of -- 1/8th size splits in firebox, just enough to heat up 1/4 plate steel stove, and putting some of my wet splits that i still have to make from my wet rounds or the wet pallet boards on to the 1/4 steel 2ftx 2ft stove top and try frying the water out of the wood, like cooking on a stove top only not really cooking. I Would have to stay right there and watch it like a cat with a conered mouse but it might dry my wood out. What you think, am I the only crazy one , or do others see merit in this idea. Any one actually try this and have experience to share with us. This is the fall rainy season in ct, just before onset of winter, so i dont see any chance of any sun drying from now on. I was sick all summer trying to shake a nasty infection with a variety of antibiotics which I finally triumphed over, so not much got done, leaving me playing catch up ball and trying to pick up the shambles, now that i am well again. next year , I start cutting in march and splitting in april, so i never get stuck with wet & green wood again.
