Wood Stacking Art
Stacking Logs Turns into an Art Form
The next time you are stacking wood take inspiration from these examples. Combine the science of stack stability with the art of creating an wood sculpture.
Can you guess what's on the outside of this woodshed?
Why, It's Windows in the Woodshed
Word from an Expert Woodsman
What Chuck Ray says about stacking firewood:
'If you're nice and cozy by your wood stove, and feeling good about your own energy and stamina in splitting and piling all that wood for the winter, then good for you. But don't get too impressed by your own firewood prowess until you consider these Herculean efforts'. See more about firewood stacking.
Keep the Stacks Straight
The firewood blocks are usually slightly bigger at one end than the other, so give their placement thought. My advice is to straighten the stack every row or two otherwise the weight of the logs prevents sensible adjustment.
Incidentally, I plan my wood stacks to last for two seasons (6 to 18 months).
