The wood stacked against a wall leans, and may eventually fall over, because the outer end of each piece dries faster than the other end, thus shrinks more and is causing the lean. Doesn't take much on each individual split piece, but is accumulative the taller the stack is piled.

I always stack so that the front, away from the wall, is slightly elevated and 3 or 4 inches away from the wall or other piles at the bottom where I begin. All it takes is placement of the wood so a few pieces with the thicker end is to the front. Easy solution. ;)

Hot today but going to be worse this weekend and have a delivery scheduled for Sunday to combine it with another task. Have been trying to line up back hauls, no sense driving the pig anywhere empty. Only selling green wood this year split right into the truck! Demand is more than I would want to handle without a processor and bigger truck. With short side boards this mason body holds two face cord.

We went and jumped in the river for a while then I filled the truck from one of the "mini landings"

Sorry about your wood pile cutter   :-\

  More pics of loads that have come in.  I missed the 20-cord trainload.  He was in when I wasn't.  I've got some stocked now, but it won't last.  Thirty-five face cords on the list to do now and another 50 waiting on them to call when they're ready.  100" is harder to find than I'd like.  Winter's coming.
My fox buddy showed up the other night.  I had the Bobcat shut off a few minutes checking and returning texts when it scampered in and hung out for a bit.  He had a companion by the sugarhouse that never came into the yard.

Great photos Corley!
Were busy with firewood these days too. Too many dogs though, so our fox is shy.

Good on all you guys getting ahead. I feel like I've been treading water for weeks now. We'll get a few cord done then get a few cord more of orders. I looked at my order list the other day, I'm booked through September. No new customers, no more orders till we get caught up. I felt the stress melt away as I said it! 

   I was hoping to get 4 cord one this weekend. Its been super hot, so then I was thinking 3 cord. A buddy got me, the wife, and kid, Patriots practice/inter team scrimmage tickets for Fri night, a great day away for us. We got home late Fri, so we got 2 cord done, but had a good weekend!

@GRANITEstateMP I hear ya. Having that responsibility of getting people's winter heating ready in time can be heavy on the shoulders. Hot here too, all during July the boss and I went out each morning at 7am and did 1 cord to beat the heat. A lot of mornings getting into the mid-30C. Some days only 1/2 cord, some days 1-1/2. It allowed us to get caught up on fall orders of seasoned wood. Then a call comes in and a new customer almost next door is looking for 3 cord of dry wood. We shuffled some pre-orders around and filled it. Come to find out they had enough for this year, they were looking for next year's supply. Fair enough, but they could of taken green wood. Someone calls now we are out of seasoned wood for the 2022-2023 winter. Only kiln dried will be available. We shuffled orders around a lot this year trying to appease new customers, it got confusing as to what belonged to who. No more shuffling. As we begin processing orders for repeat customers next year once their name goes on the crates it will be like written in stone.

This morning's 2 hour workout was eventually rained out. The sawdust can only provide so much traction to wet logs. A little before and after. Running a husq 372xp x-torq with 24 inch bar. 3 tanks of gas.

I just got done 30+ cord of too big for the firewood processor,  had to run them through the sawmill LT15.
Quartered them. The new 59 cord came in and it looks like very few too big logs if any.
On the weekend my son a I drove up to Edmonton AB took a look at a western star truck with a picker. It will be a good asset,  the logging company will not need to send a picker out anymore,
The picker cost me the same as a BTrain 22.5 cord and the picker 14 cord, the best part is they can send a Btrain a lot quicker then if they have to schedule the picker in with it.
This is going to be only a yard truck.

It's only a mere pittance compared to some but I'm down to maybe 2.5 cords to go and it's white oak .It's been piled up for 10-12 years but still hard as concrete and dry enough to burn as it is .Gnarly stuff .I cannot move those big rounds by hand any more but I do have a tractor that does it very well .Big rounds are time consuming but have a lot of wood in them . It might take me 3 weeks to finish but I am retired you know . I'm just trying to get it cleaned up .

This started out at over 10-12 cord at one time .Due to fact it was tree trimmer  drop off they typically cut the small stuff at two-three feet and use a skid loader .Then I have cut them down and file the saw chain often because that dirt does a number on them

 .There might be 4-5 cords in that mess

Like I mentioned in another thread it was raining here this morning so I decided to deliver two full cords to a good customer that ordered them a couple days ago.   Full cords means stacking them in the dump trailer so I can get one full cord loaded at a time.   But I had Mrs. Lapp to help and it goes fast.  Two cords at $250 each is an easy mornings work.
