My parents burn a lot of wood in the winter and their current wood box is probably about 20 years old and falling apart. So enter the wood box 2.0. The dimensions are 4ft wide x 4ft tall x 2ft deep, so it should hold about 1/4 cord of fire wood. I made it out of sassafras due to its rot resistance and availability in my area. My Dad who does most of the fire stoking is wheelchair bound so I decided to make it a cabinet style as opposed to the traditional top load so he could access the bottom logs easier. My Mom wanted it to have a rustic flair to it so I did tongue and groove on the sides and doors as well as leaving the boards in their rough state from the lumber yard. The interior floor is cedar to hopefully cut down on the insects and the back is plywood. I sealed the whole thing with clear Thompson’s water sealer. Thanks for looking and comments, critiques, and questions are always welcome.
