Stackwall corners were one of the first methods of building cordwood walls. You built one of these on each corner and then infilled between. This 24" beauty was erected by Bob & Sheryl Gormley of Minnesota.

Wood is sometimes used in a masonry type of construction, known as cordwood construction, stackwood construction, or stackwall construction.  Cordwood consists of logs that have been cut into lengths which are suitable for burning in a fireplace or woodstove, around 16 inches to around 24 inches in length (~40 cm to 60 cm).  This wood can be split or left in the round.  The length of the logs is the thickness of a wall to be built.  Nice thick walls: very strong and good insulators.
