Didn't know where to put this so it is in here.
Last weekend I build a firewood holder/stand type thing. It turned out real nice but I am afraid I made it too long and tall. currently my fire wood is unsplit and stacked as you would split wood and the rack is much higher and longer than the current stack of wood. I'm in SoCal so we dont have a lot of cold weather to require a lot fires in the winter so I probably have 3 years worth.
Since my side yard space is at a premium to store other things I now have a stupid question.
Question: when I split the wood will it take up more or less space when stacked compared to 16" logs (not split) stacked in the same fashion?
I have the potential to cut my rack down by a 1/3 of it's size so I don't know if I should leave it as long and tall as it is or pare it down a bit and save valuable space.
