Do you count the lighter area between the darker rings as the growth ring ? Burned plenty of wood but never thought about correct way to count the rings . If you count the lighter area my Huebler shaft has 12 .

One light ring combined with one dark ring equates to one year's worth of growth. One is summer and the other is winter.

Counting the growth rings around my tummy from good food and beer.
I am really, really old.
