This nice-looking firewood rack comes to us from Eric Reibsane. The rack's overall dimensions are 8 ft wide x 4 ft high x 2 ft deep and it comfortably holds a 1/2 cord of split wood.
The outside frame is thin wall 1-1/2 inch square tube. The "V" is 3/4 inch angle iron and creates two rails that support the wood. Each "V" is set in about 6 inches from the front and back.
Matching the "V" is 3/4 inch angle iron on the bottom and sides. The triangles formed by the angle iron make the frame very rigid. The open tube ends are closed with plasma cut stars and eye-bolts are on each of the bottom corners for securing a tarp. The feet are 2 inch square tube cut to 3 inches.
Eric used his SP-135 Plus (now a Power MIG 140C) wire feeder welder and SuperArc L-56 MIG wire (C25 shielding gas) to weld the firewood rack. Eric said "I've been using my SP-135 Plus for nearly three years and it is a great piece of equipment. One day I hope to add a Lincoln Precision TIG to my tools."
