Using firewood rack brackets can make building a firewood rack quick and easy. Overall, building a firewood storage rack is relatively easy but it can involve cutting angles, proper reinforcement and general knowledge about construction.
To make things easier and still insure you build a strong, stable firewood rack, pre-made brackets can be recommended.
The steel firewood brackets allow you to quickly and easily construct a firewood rack using 2x4inch log purchased from your local hardware store.
How To Work
Firewood can be very heavy and building a rack to handle the weight can be tough. The weight of the firewood pushing out against the vertical uprights of the rack can cause the joints to become loose and fail over time.
The pre-molded steel brackets allow you to slide the pre-cut 2x4's into the brackets creating a strong 90 degree angle.
To add more strength and stability, most brackets have pre-drilled holes which allow you to add screws or nails to hold the log in place.
The construction elevates your firewood off the ground increasing air flow and reducing the chances of insects or rotting firewood.
