A face cord is a face cord. No set cubic feet. Could be 4x8x24" or could be 4x8x8". All of my wood is cut to 22" and full rounds. Much easier for me to keep track each year if i measure in face.

The guy was asking $70 delivered.
I got him to let me pick it up for $60/face cord because I bought three loads in my puny dodge.
His "face cord" didn't fill a 6' pickup bed.
Too much but it was good dry wood.

Like I said...this year I'm paying his full price, making him deliver a cord-cord. Then build that box and say fill it.
I bet it ends up being 4 face cords. 18" logs should be three. He very good at stacking it loosely. Sneaky bastard.
I've heard that it's incredibly stupid to **** around with a crazy man's head.

Just because somebody has a house with a fireplace and they have a smartphone dont mean they know **** about firewood.
Judging by how the suppliers here act...most ppl dont look up what a cord is and just say mmmm hmmm.
Then pay.

I have cut a cord and a half by myself so far this summer. Lotta storms and broken trees. :thumbsup:

Face cords and "truck loads" are illegal in Georgia.
I sold firewood and scrapped metal for a year while I was out of college.

I wish it was like Georgia here...the sellers here get PISSED if you know the difference.
A cord is 4x8x4
Face cord 4x8x (however long the logs are)

Ask for a face cord of 4' logs. :)
