DIY Firewood Rack With Roof
Looking for full cord firewood rack plans? You’re in luck! Today we are revealing our latest woodworking project that is perfect for beginners – a DIY firewood rack with a roof for your backyard to store all of your firewood.
So awesome, right?! I love the modern looking slats, roof to keep wood protected and that natural cedar tone stain!
It was a fairly easy project to build and the pocket hole joinery made it even easier!
- Cut wood according to woodworking plans. You can use either a miter saw or Kreg’s cutting station & circular saw.
- Drill pocket holes as shown in plans. We used the Kreg 720 Pro pocket hole jig.
- Assemble base and sides.
- Level ground and add cinder blocks (one in each corner). This helps keep the wood off of the ground.
- Attach base, side panels, and back slats with 2 1/2" construction screws.
- Stain or paint (optional). . We went with a natural cedar exterior stain and applied it with our paint sprayer, which helped get it in between the slats and in all the nooks and crannies of the pocket holes.
- Add roof, which we made out of cedar fence pickets stacked up on the roofline attached with 2" galvanized brad nails.
This firewood storage rack is a simple build to follow – even a beginning woodworker could tackle it in a few days if you followed along on our woodworking plans.
