I made a firewood rack from some leftover and salvaged materials. It cost me nothing and I had it assembled in an hour. Thought I would share.




More details about the construction can be found on my Blog; http://thinbluesmoke.com/wordpress/firewood-rack-from-reclaimed-materials/

I use concrete blocks and landscaping timbers. Cheap, easy and expandable. Now I've got about four face cords worth of oak and sour wood to split and season and the 30" rick cost me less than $20. No, I don't burn sour wood in my smoker, but it's fine for the fireplace.

Thanks Frosty!

Thank you castrovillecowboy! I agree 100% on getting those little projects knocked out of the way quickly.

Thanks suckaass! It's pretty easy to come by "free" pallets. My neighbor saw what I was doing and he's offering me some pallets from his place of work, So firewood rack II may be here soon. Very Happy ... or maybe the neighbor just wants me to straighten up the yard??? Shocked Laughing

BigOrson, nice idea. I put the runners under my pallets so that I can pick up the rack with the pallet forks on the tractor if I ever need to.

That would be a mean trick with my cheapo setup, but I'm on a 1/2 acre suburban lot and don't have a tractor. Laughing
