Make this easy DIY modern firewood holder to add some modern charm and warmth to your space.
Since I started working on this project I have had several people ask me if we have a wood-burning fireplace. We don't actually it's gas...but for some reason having firewood next to a fireplace even if it never gets used, makes a space more inviting and warm.
I wanted to add some more modern touches to my otherwise rustic farmhouse style so when I saw some Iron House Log Holders priced in the hundreds of dollars, I was inspired to create my own for FREE.
The way I built this firewood holder is purely meant for decoration. It is not meant to hold a lot of firewood or even take a beating from the movement of adding and taking away firewood. If you want something more stable consider using thicker wood.
My log holder measured 27 3/8 L 12 1/8 W x 13 7/8 D inches and the pieces of wood were 5/8 inch thick. Cut your wood to your sizing preferences or with what scrap wood you have available. Due to imperfections and minor errors in cuts, I recommend cutting your pieces as you go instead of cutting everything in the beginning. Remember to measure twice cut once.
*Tip - You will notice that the end of the slants sticks out about a 1/4 inch from the side pieces. I marked this point and cut it off at a 45-degree angle so it will sit flush with the sides.
