    Splits? I cut all of my wood on a modified radial arm saw, that helps keep everything consistent and I can stack my wood very tightly, which cuts down on the air voids and makes calculating my burn times easier using the spreadsheet and a special slide rule I have been developing specifically for the purpose.

    I know this is an old post but I have to agree with Scott. It goes without saying that the answer will vary depending on the woods dimensions and how it's stacked; however, theoretically, if each piece was 4" x 4" x 16" stacked side by side and end to end (so that there are 12 rows on the bottom and 12 rows on the top which is very unstable), you'd have 1,152 pieces of firewood in a cord. Scott's estimate is very close which is why I agree with him.

    I agree. I make stacks 4 foot - 6" to account for shrinkage during drying.

    DEF400FD-2405-495E-B6D2-AF8D04510016.jpeg To answer the question,there’s 333 pieces on average of split firewood to every cord.
    Look what my truck turned over to!
    This means I’ve delivered 1000 cords doesn’t it?
