Pallet Wood Projects: DIY Firewood Rack
“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.”
