Firewood Rack

Project by RexMcKinnon posted 10-04-2010 08:29 PM 29198 views 9 times favorited 10 comments Add to Favorites Watch

I was tired of not haveing a good place to put my firewood. The bulk of it is corded almost 200 feet away from my house near my shed but I always keep about 2 cords near the house for conveince. On nice days I just replenish the cords. I had always put my wood in this location but it was loosly piled on some scrap boards to keep it off the ground. Also I always had to be careful not to hit the house while stacking the wood. Now with 2 young kids who take every oppourtunity to climb the wood pile I though I should make something a little neater and a little more secure. I will probably shingle the top later but that’s it for now.

It looks really great. Not sure where you live, but I wouldn’t stack wood touching a house in the south cause of subterranean termites even if its brick they are touching… those pest seem to always find a way so watch for their tunnels!

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Houston: don’t have to worrk about termites where I am but we do get carpenter ants. They don’t have as bad as a reputation as termites but they don’t have a good one either. I plan on treating under the rack just to be safe.

Very nice. At my former home, I built one somewhat similar. It was very handy indeed.

I am wondering what is the purpose of the smaller section on the right.

jroot; the smaller section on the right is for the splits I have not cut yet. Maybe this weekend… maybe not ;-)

This is an interesting setup. The smaller section could store kindling and then where you have the trash barrels I could store unsplit rounds.

Yup that’s what the smaller section is for. When the picture was taken I had no finished making the kindling yet. As for the trash bins I don’t have the room for them else where otherwise I would had made the other sections larger.
