    I use pallets on top of stacks. It ties the stacks together and creates an airspace between tarp and firewood.

    Good idea, the warden won’t allow tarps here.

    1 use 1” diameter branches to tie the two sides together about 1/3 of the way up my stacks. I cut them 36-40” in length. I also use plastic tie straps to tie the cribbed ends back into the stacks using a staple gun.

    23 posts so far on stacking wood.
    We have a problem. (More than one if you listen to my wife.)

    I was building another woodshed this year and still may but I’m thinking I’ll try incorporate the ideas here for the first bits.

    Thanks to the original poster for bringing this up!

    Usually I stack shoulder height on cinder blocks and 2x4’s or landscape timber’s. The stacks do tend to want to fall, I find the spring thaw causes a lot of movement. I do stack maintenance where I’ll use a floor jack to level then back out before they fall. I still will lose one on occasion.

    I just started doing this with my outside stacks this past summer. So far, so good.

    Hey, this is highly technical stuff that the ignorant layman just can't appreciate!:D
