How to Easily Make a V-Shaped DIY Cinder Block Firewood Rack
We had another tree fall in our yard and oops no space for the wood! So, we decide to make a v-shaped DIY cinder block firewood rack. This is one of the easiest, fastest, and cheapest wood racks to assemble for your backyard.
The materials needed are something most of us have already in the garage or shed but if not, it's still cheap to purchase. About $1.10 for a cinder block at Lowe's (you'll need 2) and $3.40 for a 6-foot-long treated 2x4 (you need 4) at Menards. Under $20 total!
Here's how to make your own DIY firewood holder:
- Two cinder blocks
- Four 2x4 pieces of treated lumber in whatever length you wish*
*We decided to go with 6-foot-long 2x4's but you might go shorter depending on where you are locating it or if you already have some wood on hand.
1. Place the cinder blocks
Decide where you want your setup. It could be near your firepit, under a shelter, or along a fence, which is what we did.
Simply set the two cinder blocks side by side with the 4 holes up. Easy peasy!
2. Insert 2x4s
Insert a pressure-treated 2x4 in each opening of the cinder blocks pointing outward into a "V" shape- it's that simple!
3. Stack firewood
Stack your wood in the "V" shape. See? I told you: so easy and so fast!
Note: You can easily mix up the big wood and small pieces throughout or left and right side small stuff and big stuff center.
