1. Firewood Holder from Plumbing Pipes

This is an easy DIY project you can do using plumbing pipes. It is equipped with wheels for easy transportation of firewood, from the outside to your fireplace inside the home. Click on the title to learn how to do it!

2. Firewood Storage Cart

Need something smaller or narrow for a small space? Here are other mobile firewood storage ideas for you!

3. Pallet Shed

Of course, the humble pallet! They are one of our favorites on this list because the idea is very inexpensive. Plus, pallets are really perfect for firewood drying. They can stand outdoor weather conditions and they provide good air circulation!

4. Pallet Rack

You can even take out the ‘roof’ to make a simple rack out of the pallets for more air and sun exposure.

5. Custom Outdoor Firewood Storage

If you don’t like the look of pallets, why not DIY or have your firewood shed customized? Here’s one of the good-looking custom firewood storage!

If you’ve got a lot of logs piled up, don’t just leave them outside! Use a custom-made, weatherproof firewood storage unit that you can place in your backyard, such as a galvanized steel shed, or you can use a firewood rack to display your firewood so that it’s immediately handy when you need it.

6. Timber and Bricks

And here’s another one of our favorites. It’s a no-tool project and you can make one using scrap timber and extra bricks from previous projects! What’s also nice about this idea is that you can build one of any size that you want. It could be just a small version for kindling or a large one for firewood.

7. Under-the-Bench Firewood Storage

Have a bench? Why not make it dual-purpose by using the space under firewood storage? 🙂

A great alternative to expensive firewood storage systems… I don’t know about you, but I’m too lazy to build a full shed and then pay an annual fee to store my firewood in it.

This under-the-bench storage system is a great way to save space and money by storing the firewood in your garage.

8. Hallway/Display Unit Firewood Storage

You can also use the space under a display unit! It might not be applicable to every home, but it will be a great idea for homes that have a built-in hearth in their living room.

9. Vertical Wall Storage

If you are just about to build your house, you might want to include this in the plan! Provide vertical wall storage near your fireplace. 🙂

10. Hanging Firewood Storage

What about a wall-mounted steel firewood holder?
