    No one can deny that you have wood.

    No, you cannot. Now go away.

    I’m finding the ‘piles-within-piles’ effect of the second photo unreasonably pleasing…. time to go home……

    no because asking to join is instant disqualification

    I’ve not noticed the naysayers on this thread with wood recently.

    Been on this today. Orange AND woodpile – is that double points? 😀

    Zero points; a > 3.5kg splitting maul is 10 points and a hydraulic splitter driver by an internal combustion engine zero points. Creatively stacked wood in inventive wood store is 10 points, bagged wood in a heap is zero points.

    For a hobbyist perhaps.

    The wood burner is the only heating in my house. If you’re a professional then having professional tools is not worth bragging about on an STW thread. Bragging rights go to amateurs (hobbyists) that have a three-axis CNC machine not Dowty group. (add smiley to taste).

    Nobody asks to join the elite. You either are or you aren’t.

    Minor correction….

    Is that one of those sex machines my “friend” said he saw on internet?

    It does look rather Dolcett.

    The goal posts have moved since the discovery of these.

    Goes off to reassess the definition of STW elite.

    Very pretty but examples of how not to season wood. Stacking to promote air circulation and a roof are essential.

    Are they hollow? Does the broch have a spiral stair?

    I’m curious how the core would dry too. My suspicion is that that they would sit for a few years so the drying rate may just be slower. It must be a centuries old stacking style.

    I stacked peat in a similar way, with no tarp or weather proofing in Orkney which has a notoriously poor climate. Peat once initially dried changes it’s structure and can withstand a certain amount of exposure to rain without reducing it’s burnability.

    The wood I stacked last year in an open shed with a tin roof has shrunk from being tight against the roof to about six inches or so below it. The wood I transferred from a shed which had limited airflow and that had started to grow a fungus ( mostly on Beech logs ) immediately stopped once stored with more airflow.

    It’s almost worth a bike trip out there to find out ❓

    You make me happy that I touched a nerve. Thank you.

    I’m still trying to replenish what we burned last year. I’d would be interesting to see if I can fill the hole on the shed with this lot. I somehow doubt it.

    Congrats, you have about as much sawdust as I have logs left. It’s been a hard winter.
