Want a better storage solution for your firewood? This easy DIY system would be a perfect weekend project for you!
The DIY fire wood holder featured here was built after seeing a similar idea from a catalog. It was perfect but it was also priced above what some of us are willing to pay. And why spend money when you can make one using materials you might already have or can source for free or very little expenditure?
You can use reclaimed or leftover lumber and old plumbing pipes in building this rustic fire wood holder. Now isn’t that a good addition to your fireplace?
Better still, by having it on wheels, you can take it close to the outdoor woodpile to load and then bring it back inside.
We say it’s better than the ones in the catalog! It will also look good with a white base and metal coloured pipes.
Want one for yourself? Start gathering all the materials you’ll need!
