fittin up



Stacks of wood.

He would stack.


She would stack.


They would stack, those nuns making something.


I stacked last spring.


Alas, no nuns to help.










Stacks seasoning.


They worked every minute of every day for the rest of spring, all summer and into fall–

Those stacks.

    Functional and aesthetically pleasing – I like it. If only it had a little door…

    Looks great Rick! You do a much tidier job than I do.

      Stella did a great job on your woodrick, John, in spite of her lack of opposable thumbs! I am torn between leveling each subsequent ring or having them point a little down and in for stability, like building a stone wall. Some water must be working its way into the center of the stack. How did you address this?

      The first couple of pictures are of billets of wood stacked for making charcoal, Ernest. Mark (in the second picture) initially stacks them in this orderly fashion as a means of measurement. He then re-stacks the same wood to make the charcoal pile. They are making charcoal next week, I hear–you can smell the coaling wood all over town…

    I saw one of these in Forest Park, Lakeville yesterday and immediately thought of you!! Hope all is well with you and the MLB crew! 🙂 Open House this Sunday at the Freetown Historical Society if you are looking for something fun to do!
