Sounds like a plan. Weights are ok. You can also use cargo straps to bind the stack together.

Stickers need to be no less than 1” thick. Ask the sawyer if he can make some for you when he mills wood.

VERY IMPORTANT: Set up a level and sturdy base at least 8” off the ground. I use concrete blocks on top of 4” thick pads with 4×4’s across. I use a string and level to make sure everything is perfectly flat.

You will also need to address the insect issue. Various ways to do that, but I just periodically spread some sevin dust or diazinon around and throw some between the boards.

Good idea to lay a sheet of 6 mil plastic on ground down under the stack.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
