One of the best things to do on a cold winter evening is to sit near a fireplace to enjoy the toasty warmth and soft light of a good fire.
Because seasoned firewood is dry wood, it’s important to keep your stack dry and off the ground. That’s why a good indoor firewood holder is key for homes that have a fireplace.
Want a better storage solution for your firewood? This easy DIY system would be a perfect weekend project for you!
The DIY firewood 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 firewood 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-colored pipes.
