That's a good idea. I considered something like that -- the bookends -- but the pallets seemed to be at a premium at the time, plus I wanted to go higher -- 6 feet, fence height. I do pick up scrap lumber for kindling -- might be able to use some of that and fashion something at the ends, or just get extra pallets and do that. Just ran a search and saw something about criss-cross stacking. I guess that's like 3 16" splits one way then alternate the next layer direction, etc. I wonder if you could go 6' high doing that, and if it would even be sturdy enough. That's something to play around with. Problem with the pallets, is that they're not always layed out so you can stack in the direction you want. It would make sense to overbuy now and keep the wood stacked (buying cheaper unseasoned) for a year or so -- where I want the privacy. When I started doing it back there, seemed like a nice idea but by spring my wood pile fence was all gone. And back there was not really convenient for the current season. So what do you do? -- You move your stacks that are for the current season closer to the house after they've aged and then use the same area for unseasoned, I guess. It's a lot of work. I like to bring wood in only about once a week. I've gone to a wheelbarrow. To be carrying 10 or so pieces at a time with a log carrier every day or so was not making me very happy. It does mean keeping a lot of wood in the house. But I guess I have to check on the pallet availability soon. It's labeled as free firewood, so might not be a year round kind of thing. So in your photo, looks like there's only one section with a tarp over. Do you not need to cover the stacks that are not seasoned yet? And you keep it all together and don't move the current season closer to the house. You're pretty far away from the house. Though you don't want to get too close to the house with these large wood piles. I have to find some good articles on this -- what to do, not do. Looks like this should be moved to another area. Maybe you know how to do that if you reply.
