For my first split, after seeing some of the posts on this site, I went to Home Depot. Loaded 3 nice 10" 4x6 on cart. Took them to their cutting area and told them I wanted them cut into 16.5" sections. Those cuts will give you 3 pieces on each layer, alternate for stability. They put a guy on it and he cut each piece to exact length, gave me 21 pieces, plus 3 small end cuts, cost $45.00, here in CA. Well worth the peace of mind when heavy tractor is well cribbed. You"ll be surprised how many other uses show up real quick.

Good post Denis.
Even full price - $45 - is cheap when you figure the cost of a blunder or accident.
Jim UT,
Me too. I kept the 20" 4X4s I had left over from a fence I built this fall. Got 6x6, 4x8, 4x4 and even a pair of 12x12s in my stash behind the garage for messing with stuff.

I can see where those different sizes would come in handy.

Amen! I drive down a twisty canyon road pretty regularly. About every other week, especially in winter, someone tags the guardrail. That usually results in a few broken guardrail posts. I like to watch for the repair crews to come fix it. Then as soon as they leave, I swoop in and gather up all the broken timbers. They are 6" x 8" and usually about 2 feet long (depending on where they broke). I take them home and cut off the jagged ends. I use them all the time.
