    Granny's woodsheds and yard has stacks of firewood. Our woodshed and yard are also full. It will be next April before there is any space to be able to go out and get some more firewood and only if I don't move the outside stack into the woodshed in the spring. So I'm suffering from wood gathering withdrawal but nothing a FEW PICTURES WON'T CURE!

    Last May I lucked into a Wood Hoarders Dream. Over a six week period, twenty cords were scrounged out of this unending pile.

    Woodwidow even let me buy a bigger new saw to go after this prize.

    This wood was really fun.

    This bigger log was badly wind shook and could easily be broken up with a maul.

    The outside stack at our place. If this pile goes into the woodshed next spring, I won't get out cutting wood until the spring of 2021.

    campinspecter, that is some big wood, and impressive stacks. I'm kind of in the same boat as you. I'm running out of suitable places to stack splits. I still have rounds from last fall I need to split and stack.

    As for my favorite wood cut that would be the hickory from late last year, early this year. There were 3 total that had blown down.

    IMG_20180907_15794.jpg This was black locust I got from a neighbor's yard last September, felled and brush removed before I got there. It was 7 or 8 trunks. It was the first time I had cut anything this big, with my only saw at the time, my MS180. I learned a lot! I hand split it on site into chunks small enough to lift into my car. I haven't burned any of it yet.

    I don't think we'll run out of room here in my time. I should take some pictures of what we have on hand and maybe will next week if I remember. Heading to a gtg soon.

    Here are some pictures; some from our gtg and some from just our cutting. Hope I didn't post too many. 101_0301.JPG 101_0459.JPG 101_0482.JPG 20170422_112118.jpg 164965-2716b33e86b351fb1a433ceab672f026.jpg DSCN0929.JPG IMG_3198.JPG At Lenord's cabin.jpg Kevin and Brian.JPG Playing or working.JPG 101_0095.JPG Christmas-2008d.JPG May 2014-e.JPG Wood split almost done 2010.JPG Wood-2009e.JPG Woodpile-2 2014.JPG

    I own a 180 c-be
    Dunno what black locust is like to cut but know what a 180 is like to cut with. With maple and oak.
    That was a project.
