In the winter, being close to the building means less time out in the cold when fetching wood.
In the summer, whenever wood is stacked up, it will help shade the building to keep it cooler.
In South Carolina mildew can be a bit of a problem so allowing enough space to maintain proper air flow is essential. I have some unused galvanized metal pipes and wanted to incorporate them into the firewood rack design.
You do not want to bring mold and fungus covered logs into your home and burn them.To protect your hard work and investment, stacking your wood on a firewood rack can help keep it dry and free of unwanted insects. The rack is built out of 4x4's for the corner posts and 2x6's for the base covered by deck boards.

Sawbuck Assembly Instructions - Firewood Cutting Rack Sep 08, 15 03:57 PMThese sawbuck assembly instructions create an easy way for anyone to build a strong and durable folding rack for cutting firewood. These firewood rack plans are created for someone who is looking for a nice firewood storage rack that's both functional and affordable.A firewood storage rack is a great way to properly store firewood near your home, eliminating the need for several trips back and forth to your wood shed. Next, take the two 12'' long 2x4's and screw them into the ends of the parallel 2x4's you have on the ground. This brace will help prevent the vertical uprights from becoming loose or bowing out under the weight of the firewood. Next, take two 9'' long 2x4's and attach them to the tops of the vertical uprights, creating a cap. Finally, take the two remaining 9'' long 2x4's and attach them to the ends of the wood rack, 24'' up from the bottom.


Based on last year, I figure I need wood to burn for five months with three months being especially cold. Metal racks can be purchased almost anywhere and generally come in either 4 foot or 8 foot options. They are cemented in the ground to add stability and prevent them from bowing out when the stacked wood is pressing out on them.Next I constructed the base out of 2x6 lumber. Once the rack was finished I added a coat of deck stain to match my nearby deck and protect it from the weather.The firewood storage rack works great and saves me a lot of time. I chose 2x6 due to the heavy load of the wood being stacked upon it.As you can see from the pictures the lawn slops off towards the woods so the base is actually suspended and not resting on the ground.
