    Looks like work to me

    May just look like a dent but that's quite a bit of wood bucked up

    I have 2-3 cord left over from last year. Assuming we stop burning at some point, it's only March after all. Have a cord stacked from earlier this year then I'll have this last couple of cord I've been splitting and I'll be sitting pretty. Then I can just fiddle on some the rest of the year getting ahead again.

    Got some cherry I’m speed drying. Might be ready mid summer. 32” bar on the 064 DA2935DE-B0D9-4660-B95A-E7E7CD6E4CB2.jpeg 17C4A9AC-321A-4715-B023-FDDBBAE072E7.jpeg CE469F2C-731C-40C4-A072-FB92FCFD8D33.jpeg 78F865B6-BBA1-4188-BABE-564BFBBAE66A.jpeg

    Do you want it to stay in those rounds?

    You'd be surprised how slowly it'll dry like that.

    Yes 90% of wood I get is for cooking and that’s he’s new to me. Had him 2 weeks, very good looking dog that gets lots of attention when in the city

    DSW the wood dries mostly out the ends from what I have learned

    Beautiful dog! I think split would dry faster but I don't have any scientific details that would prove I'm right...just my experience.

    nice splitter pix. I like the construction of the splitter! noted your idler... :D

    I got in some old cedar fencing scrounged recently. but nice wood! will be hand splitting it into kindling. I set it up so when the axe goes thru, and it releases the pce... off it flies into the 'catch bin!'... but, lol, I don't always make a basket! each split seems to have a mind of its own. I made some similar kindling couple weeks back. and noted I was breaking in two to make fire in house fireplaces... so this time I cut the cedar a bit shorter in length. if there was a market for pine twig kindling I could make a killing! lol... it drops daily in my yard, 12 big pine trees! but imo... dry split cedar fence slats made into kindling is about the best I have found to date. I keep some cedar kindling 1" or so off a chunk... to spike up a fire if it shows signs of cooling. sometimes that happens. the cedar is like a shot of nitrous... :D

    plenty of work ahead...

    on my newly scrounged and serviced Mac tool cart... great lil mobile kindling bench...

    easy splitting, but I always wear leather gloves. once I was real glad I had some thick ones on...

    True that.

    Have to bring in the saw from time to time but most of the wood is pretty reasonable.

    Got another load of cherry today from a different spot. Hoping she will have the rest of the tree taken down so I can score some more 23F7E353-2C59-4C65-BC85-2E90DD8BC3C5.jpeg 9F95954D-2D4D-468B-B80A-CD6F3B49A94B.jpeg C633E445-AAC3-4050-9630-BED271B7DE13.jpeg C5E3EBCA-2D89-40FE-AA95-9539E5206109.jpeg smoked this steak up while splitting. Used cherry and oak wood. Took about an hour maybe more

    Pictures won't do this justice but it's an absolute pile of wood.

    I've already given my daughter the bad news that in a week she gets to help me stack it on her two week long spring break. :)

    It won't be until summer or so but I'll be cutting this eventually.

    IMG_20190311_172256531.jpg

    Lotta good firewood in this tree. Underrated wood. Doesn't coal up as well as oak but otherwise it's right there.

    I'm sitting pretty now. Eventually get it all bought up to the house. Get back to being well ahead and working on extra at my leisure.
