Holz Hausen Wood Pile Fail

Holz Hausen Wood Pile Fail

It happened.  A couple of weeks ago my precious holz hausen wood pile failed.

It’s no surprise.

While I built the holz hausen wood pile one corner gave me nohing but trouble.  The corner of the fail on the left is exactly where I was having trouble.

I should have put a horizontal split to give the outer ring more of an inward angle.  I didn’t.  I wanted to build a wood pile without any horizontal logs around the outside.

It would have been a first for me.

When winter ends I’ll fill my wood shed hoop house with the wood and fix the holz hausen wood pile.  I hope to enjoy it another year or two.

Live and learn.

I'm a chainsaw, chainsaw mill, log splitter, axe and outdoor fanatic. I purchased a my first chainsaw, a Stihl 020, in 1992. I've added a Stihl 036 and Stihl 046 to my collection. I split wood with a Wetterlings Splitting Maul and Ames Super Splitter. When my body's had enough I use a Timberwolf TW-P1 log splitter. I use a Logosol Big Mill basic and Timberjig to mill lumber. I stack firewood in Holzhausen round wood piles.
