A very simple DIY-style Portable Firewood Storage Container using basic power tools.
Come winter time I always need to bring firewood inside and store it for those cold, rainy days. Previously I was just dumping it on the floor but I knew that building a storage container would be the best option. Elevating it off the floor meant that there would be increased airflow around the wood. Which in turn would stop it from going moldy and also allow for it to dry better. My wife was always complaining about the wood falling all over the show as well which in itself was motivation enough.
The design I came up with was simple but effective at storing a decent amount of wood, 2 to 3 days worth depending on how long we keep the fire going for. The tapered sides allow for extra storage but do not increase the footprint of the container. It can also be easily modified to fit different sizes of wood, depending on how they cut it in your area or whether you process your own firewood.
We kept the design simple using only 2 different sizes of wood. The angles can also be cut before, or after the unit has been assembled so no need for miter saws or complicated measuring (unless you want to go that route). You can choose how you tackle the project. The addition of the castor wheels is completely optional depending on whether you plan on moving the cart around.
