    I figured I would post some pics of our wood pile. I have been cutting firewood with a guy I met on another forum. We have been finding free firewood on craigslist adds. I don't have any pics since the most recent haul but we are getting a good bit of wood.

    We are probably going to be close to 20 cords of wood after we haul the last couple of loads if not more.

    Nice!
    Is that Ash wood?

    It is a whole mixed bag. There is oak, sweet gum, maple, and a little ash. After all who doesn't like a little ash every once in a while. :D

    I am not familiar with sweet gum.

    I know it isn't easy to split. The grain is very twisted.

    This may sound like a stupid question, but what does the sweet gum smell like? A friend of mine has a pile of wood that he got for free and the grain was gnarly and twisted...but it smelled like a wet, very used, horse blanket!

    I don't know if it smells that bad LOL. I don't know how to describe the smell of it. It does have more of a pugnant smell to it. The other thing I noticed is when it is fresh cut it is a whiter wood and the center has like a black walnut colored ring to it.
