Nicely done. Should last for years and years. Did you make 2 or just move the one onto the patio?

Looks great. I like the upper shelf for kindling storage.
Where I live the winter rain is often wind blown so your open design would allow the wood to get wet. Therefore mine has three sides and the open front faces away from the prevailing wind to keep the wood dry.

That’s a great idea, getting the wood off the ground and covered.

Thanks! I only made one – the pics are from completion and after I got it placed and loaded. It definitely could have used some more weather protection in the form of a back and sides, but I think there’s also something to be said for letting the breeze through to dry things out. Getting it up off the ground (and placed on plastic to deter bugs) is the key feature. Placing the kindling higher under the cover keeps the stuff you are starting with dryer than the rest.

Have your say...
