For the benefit of all of us how do you get a junior burger this motivated???
He was happy enough to give it a try, then I asked him if he thought he could stack it all over the weekend. Challenge laid down and accepted. And completed.

I don't know how long it will stay up, some of the cribbing has a bit of reverse slope which I think will bring it undone but we'll see.

Once the temp hit 11 I decided to get this wind damaged pine c/s, I moved three loads over to the outside fireplace so I can burn them.

Moved a cord of wood into the garage yesterday. The crates I made are working out good I think. The ones on the left were the first ones I made so the design has been getting better. I also loaded some of those bags of wood on a dump trailer, what a pain in the butt. My tractor is not big enough for them. IMG_20191118_122015935.jpg

That looks like a very nice way to spend the day.
I cleaned up a couple buckets worth of storm damage yesterday, it wasn't that nice out, but we did have a nice fire :D.
Here's the woodpile area lol. It was nice to get a small section of the woods cleaned up.

Looks good, now the fun part lol.
That's a monster oak there :surprised3:.
The angle of the picture conveniently hides the side where it is hollowing/rotting in the center. I still think it's going to stand for years though.

That looks like a fair amount of wood, both stacked and unstacked. How much do you reckon you have there and how many winter's worth?
I never actually got a total, so thank you for making me add it up!
Stack dimensions in inches (W x H x L):
Stack 1: 54x65x153 - 2.43 cords
Stack 2: 54x62x136 - 2.06 cords
Stack 3: 40x63x150 - 1.71 cords
Stack 4: 54x65x128 - 2.03 cords

Piled splits I'd guess 4? I'm terrible at guessing though, so I won't know until it's stacked

Wood shed you can't see in the picture (behind the pavilion) 7.25ft high in the front, 5.5ft high in the rear, 8ft deep, and 7.25ft wide - 2.89 cords

Grand total of 11.12 split and stacked + 4? to stack.

How long will it last?
Stacks 3 and 4 and start the shed as needed this year.
Next year finish the shed and use stacks 1 and 2.
Third year, burn the current splits to be stacked.
I'm sure there will be some left over from the estimates each year, so that should get me into the 4th year.

oh yes! and its a love/hate relation ship with nature, when seeing an feeling the white gold that turns green into the wallet! lol pushing it around into piles and wind rows is a lot easier then hauling heavy old firewood for sure. love me some winter wonderland again for a few months!

finally pulled it together up at the farm and got my long awaited trees project completed. 8 trees! shaping, toping, cleaning, delimbing, contouring, etc... oak, pecan and junk. ended up with a nice pile of wood. mostly all oak I kept, couple cords or so and some pecan for smoking... glad its finally done. ready for spring, now... :D P5070023.JPG P5070024.JPG P5080044.JPG P5080092.JPG
big operation, bit complex. high in the sky, and difficult close in residencial work, etc. no metal fence damage/dents/dings allowed! ;) 4 man pro arborist crew. 65' boom truck, 80 hp diesel chipper... 2 full days work! 8-5. bottom pix is one of 3 or 4 piles just like it...

that and all the rest headed to the wood pile. inside barn. out of weather. bigger chunks to be split soon... glad I got a bucket on that new tractor... ;)
