I've finished loading the kiln and today I dealt with the wood so that I can fire on Tuesday, lord willing. When it comes to firewood I usually go and pick up it up on the weekends when I'm getting close to a firing. Today was the first time that I picked up wood, sorted, cut, chopped, and stacked it all in one day. All of that took approximately 7-8 hours...longer than I thought all that took.
It's about time for me clean up this sprawling mess of a wood pile. When I unload the truck I toss all the wood into these piles. Believe it or not the wood is seperated into different sizes even though it looks like a mess. I could be more organized though.
The longer pieces are cut to fire box length on this table and stacked against the wall. When this rack is full all the pieces are chopped with an axe to approximately 2x2 size pieces and then stacked inside the barn. Then I burn those suckers.
Here's a little goat video. My truck is already pretty beat up, it is a work truck after all but I felt this was too funny to pass up and I promptly shooed them off after I shot this. Enjoy.
