Firewood Stand/Log Storage

4 Materials
3 Hours
I had some metal bands left over from the wine barrel tables that I have made in the past, so I recycled the bands into a firewood stand.
I had rope that I bought years ago when our local hardware store closed down, so finally found a use for it.
I used a clamp to hold the bands together and cut strips of wood that screwed into the bands to support the logs.  I cut two thicker  pieces of wood that fit under the bands to stop it rolling over.
I marked where the bands would be screwed into the wood and used a chisel to remove a section so the bands fit in better.  But be aware that the bands can be different sizes so measure each one.
I stained and varnished all my pieces and assembled them, ready to add the rope. I used a chrome color spray paint suitable for metal and sprayed the inside and outside of the bands.  I choose chrome because the chances of the logs scratching the paint inside to hoops is high and with chrome the color will blend in.
I have seen on other posts that people have used a hot glue gun to secure the rope, but I found it kept coming loose.  I used a large needle and fishing line to secure the ends of the rope.

I threaded the rope in a figure 8 pattern around the 3 posts and used fishing line again to secure it to the posts.
Add your firewood and you have a unique and attractive firewood stand that will look great next to your fire place.
