You know I gotta love my Lang to get out and work like this lol. Working on splitting and stacking a cord of mixed apple and pear I had dropped off last week. Splitting about 2/3 larger and 1/3 smaller for start up. It’s pretty green but I’ve used some of the small pieces when I had a good hot coal bed. I also picked up 3/4 of a rick of well seasoned cherry there still on the truck. It will go under the new overhang I had added to our storage shed. I should have a cord of oak dropped off tonight. It should require a whole lot less splitting than the apple / pear.

Nice load you got there. I’ve never seen wood stacked like that before does it help it season faster that way?
I was told that it makes the ends stronger. I was just going to stack the ends that way. My wife volunteered to stack and she did it all that way. I asked about it and got this look lol. I wasn’t going to push my luck and lose my help lol.

Yeah I wouldn’t have argued with that look either. I’ve cut and stacked a lot of wood in my day and have never seen anything like that. forktender forktender I’ve never had a stack fall over either.

This load wasn’t that long but from a circumference standpoint the guy was lazy as heck. Most pieces I split 2 to 3 times. The seasoned cherry I got is much closer to the size I like. I’ll split some of it down to coke can size. PS, not going to tell the wife you said you’ve stacked a lot and never done it that way because she said the exact same thing to me lol. If she keeps helping I’ll dang sure get her leather gloves. Actually pretty sure we have a few nice ones from Rural King in the garage. I’m just waiting to see what her ask is for the help haha.

Mine gets stacked like Jeff's but only on the ends. Keeps the ends from rolling down if it's not stacked against anything like a post or whatever

Yes Jake ends always get stacked like that here. Been stacking wood since I could walk I think. My dad taught me how to stay warm and work.

Nothing wrong with that stack or the stacker, Jeff.
I would be concerned it is out in the open. Split wood for the smoker should be covered. Top layer(s) get punky.
