Every been inside a house fire, while it was going? Depending on how close you put the wood, it could be a serious problem. Even if you follow the clearances recommended by the stove manufacturer, do you really want to trust that? Something non-combustable would be a better and much safer idea.

You usually need 18" between the stove & combustibles, some need as much as 36" - usually older stoves
Not a good idea to have the wood there
The heat from the stove will not have a good effect on it
there is some evidence that wood which is constantly exposed to temperatures above 250F can eventually turn to charcoal and present an ignition danger. Keep in mind that certain “safe” temperatures can still cause certain finishes and paints to fail and/or woods and other soft materials to warp or buckle.
