Firewood is the source of fuel for the fireplaces. Without the firewood racks, the supply of firewood that the homeowners have will be left lying on the dirt. A firewood rack is a great place to keep your supply of wood organized and easy to access. There are several firewood rack ideas. For the outdoor space, you can choose a firewood rack that somewhat resembles a basic metal book shelf without the shelves. You can build or purchase a rack like this that is as big or as small as you need it to be. Rustproof metal bars create a cage for the firewood, with a sheet at the bottom. You stack pieces of wood one on top of the other until the metal frame is full. Most of these racks come with a canvas cover to protect the top of the structure, keeping the wood dry during the rain.
Many homeowners position this rack against the side of their home to protect the back end of the firewood from the elements as well. Or you can choose a mobile firewood rack. A mobile firewood rack resembles the type of dolly you would see at a supermarket. It consists of metal bars that envelop the wood and rest upon wheels, allowing you to store firewood off the ground and then move it at a moment’s notice.
