You may have seen the smoke from my fire pit in my bridge project. Well, a fire pit can always use a decent wood shed. This one was thrown together with mostly scraps from the house build. It holds about 1 1/2 cords of split wood. The bottom of it is made of slats that allow good air circulation.

Nice looking home for your split wood. I have always wondered about rain / snow getting on the wood. Do you see that as a problem?

Actually, no. I was a bit concerned at first but i find very little rain or snow getting on the wood. Mostly on the first row (it’s 48” deep so 3 16” logs fit very nicely) and not enough to worry about. Even after a heavy rain, the wood is good and dry.

Nice looking! Did you use any plans? I am looking to build one of these for my fire pit as well!

Revrand1 – Sorry, no plans used in this one. I pretty much just slapped it together from scraps.

That’s a very practical shed and holds a lot of wood. Nice work.
