If you find out how to build a firewood rack you will be able to have one at much less cost than if you bought it. Having the basic carpenter skills you will can fulfill a good-looking yet cheap project. With it you will have your firewood stored dry and securely. Anyway, before starting the building project choose a proper wood type for it. For instance the Western Red Cedar is able to resist insects. It is priced affordable and comes totally dry. So does TimberSil wood. The latter is greatly resistant toward rotting.
So, let us start a simple project of building a firewood rack. First build the box or the base of your wood rack. For this you will need to apply the long rails (outside) over the end pieces. Specialists advise using a thin glue head for keeping everything neat. You should use at least 3 screws for each piece so that the log weight is supported. Once this is done, pass on installing the uprights. First of all you will need a flat surface. Simply fill the box on its side and fasten the upright first with glue and then with four screws. Repeat the same with the other two uprights.
Afterwards you will need some diagonal braces that will ensure both longevity and stability. Here the pocket-screwing technique comes to help for installing. Make sure the wood does not split. Once this is done, add the top to finish the project. The two top parts must overhang the uprights equitably. If you project’s uprights are not square enough, apply some muscling. Once the construction is ready apply some oil-based product as a finish. Now, when you already know how to build a firewood rack start implementing it!
