    I prefer the thicker red and white wedges but still pull out one of my hard heads if I just need to wedge a stump cut to keep from binding my saw. They don't have enough lift to do much without stacking them and as noted they don't stack well. I like them in concept but the red and whites are what I pull out of the truck when I need wedges.

    how about saw chip between them?

    The more involved way, which can stack two or THREE wedges means bore-cuts. First through the face from the front (personal preference), and from the rear, one below and optionally one above the first, parallel, 1/2" or less spacing of wood between them (puts wood between plastic, creating a slot).

    Willie has an interesting way that I never saw or heard of. Maybe he'll put up the pic, if he reads this. It a criss-cross way of stacking using a buncha wedges, 4 might work, but he had 6 or more, IIRC. Intentionally, they aren't run in a stack, parallel to one another.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.

    I would like to see Willies way. Sawdust between sounds good, I'll try that.

    Brian are you thinking of the triple tapers? I use those a bunch too.

    Just make a bunch of stacking plates.
    Problem solved.

    We have 2 wedges and 3 plates in the pouch.
    Beyond that, we either cut a block of wood, or go to the truck for reinforcements.

    I bought some material (HDTP?) to make up stacking plates - so bad at getting to projects.

    I've had a nylon cutting board in the truck, forever.

    Are you going to cut to size using chainsaw carpentry techniques?

    I've been trying to wait to use a bandsaw.

    A regular circular saw works great.
