Well I think I have solved my wood storage crisis.
The theoretical maximum storage capacity is four stacks of 15 slabs, each slab 2 feet wide by 2" thick. That's just shy of 2000 bf. However, not all slabs will of course be that size, some will be shorter, or narrower. But this is certainly enough space to see me through until the late spring when I stop milling. Right now the pile has on it the maple I got recently, as well as some more very nice old growth Douglas fir that is close to 2 feet wide.There are a couple slabs of alder in the middle of the pile, they have a very orange tinge to them.
The day after I set this up I was down at the warehouse where I am storing the Mini project. Serendipitously, leaning up against the wall covered in dirt and grime were a bunch of those corrugated fibreglass thingys. I asked and they were mine. Extra sweet since the 8' ones are more than $20 each new. Saved probably a couple hundred on that score. They are great for covering piles of wood to protect them from the rain.
