Over the holidays I wanted to do a project with my Dad so we came up with an idea and got to it. In this tutorial I will give you an overview of how to build a DIY firewood rack with roof. You can download your FREE Firewood Rack Plans here.
Tools Needed for Building DIY Firewood Rack
This is what helps support the website so I can continue making free plans for you. Orbital Sander – Dewalt makes a nice one.
Circular Saw – I use a Dewalt 20 Volt Cordless Saw (Ryobi also makes a less expensive saw). Kreg Jig Face Clamp – Very handy.
QTY: 16- 1×6 x 6 foot long cedar pickets Start making your cuts for the posts and base. Use 3 inch wood screws to attach the posts to the base. Add a 2×6 on the left and right sides to strengthen the structure.
Cut and add 4 boards to support the roof. We used 1 1/4 inch exterior grade wood screws to attach them to each of the four angled 2×4 boards that support the roof. Start throwing some logs on your new rack and enjoy.
Warm up your home and enjoy the ambiance of your wood fireplace.
Good luck with your project and most importantly have fun with the build. Please post photos of your finished firewood rack below.
