Do I need more wood? Now that is a dumb question! What I really need is more storage space for the wood I need more of, Duh!!!

Living in the United states I understand you reply. I am just curious if other people around the world also understrand it correctly.

I’m trying to burn down the supply of wood that I have acquired over the years. I happened onto 105 linear feet of black walnut 1 X 4s almost 20 years ago (FOR FREE!), and have put most of it to use. I’m currently using the last of it for a tool chest, along with a bunch of 1/2” QS red oak that I have as remnants from other projects. I have zebra wood, sapele, Bolivian rosewood, and a whole bunch of curly maple that I just couldn’t pass up when buying wood for other projects. I have a red oak plank, 4/4 by 22” by 8 feet I need to put to use, as well. I also have a few cubic feet of some really nice exotics that I picked up at the wood boutiques over the years that I need to finally use. Real answer? I think that right now, I have enough. Sacrilege, I know!

Im with BurlyBob on this one. What I really need is a separate shed in the backyard that is dedicated to just wood storage for which I need more of both.

Yes, using wood efficiently helps reduce the size of cut off pile.
But it is soo much easier to find a new long board in stack of entirely one wood type, then digging through the mixed up species in the little stuff!

+1 I need more room to store the piles of affordable wood that follow me home all to often.

I would like wood to follow me home more often. Round here all that follows me home are stray cats.
