Last weekend we headed back to my parents’ house in Lincolnshire and I split a few logs with my brother-in-law. The logs were then added to a self-supporting log pile, that my dad and sister had set up. This is basically a rectangular box of logs with all the other logs thrown in the middle. The idea is that this allows the logs to dry out, it is important to get the corners strong!

There is a lot more information in Lars Mytinng’s book Chopping Staking and Drying Wood the Scandinavian Way. Here are a few photos and videos.
