Pallet Wood Projects: DIY Firewood Rack

Build a DIY firewood rack out of pallet wood for a cheap and inexpensive wood storage structure.


| July/August 2016


“My pallet-based firewood system was inspired by other firewood pallets I’ve seen in FARM SHOW. Some of them were quite fancy, but I made mine on the cheap,” says Dennis Strahle, Eagle, Michigan.

The firewood pallets he builds are closed at one end and open at the other. A home-built, 3-point-mounted fork is used to move them around.

He uses four pallets – one for the bottom and three for the sides. The sides are wired to each other at the top and bottom corners, and also to the bottom pallet. A single wire strand extends across the top at the open end to keep the sides from springing out too far.

 “I use electric fence wire because it’s tough, yet easy to handle,” says Strahle. “It takes a little practice to wire the pallets securely.”

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
