Interior Wood Rack

My brother just bought house and has a large living room with a large fireplace. He needed something that would hold firewood and also was decorative. We came up with this plan after I built the Grandy Sliding Door Console. Instead of putting in shelves or doors, we put a bottom on and a back on and add the x (2x4's) in the center. We didn't know what to expect, but after finishing it and delivering it to his house, it turned out great.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
$75-$100. Depending on what paint/screws you have on hand. If you have to buy all paint, stain, and screws, probably closer to $100. The back we used leftover ply wood from the Grandy sliding door console.
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used
Minwax, dark walknut for the top. Then 3 coats of poly. The base is a white paint, distressed with a small amount of dark walnut stain. The base was sealed with Minwax Polycrylic.

Thanks for the comment. I have made many other projects from this site. I need to upload them all soon.

I do not have the full plans exactly. I originally built the grandy sliding media console from this site. Then I got the idea to make this firewood holder with the same concept. The only thing I did different was I didn't add any shelving inside except the very bottom shelf, and I didn't add any doors. I just used 2x4s in the center for the x's. Sorry for the late response. Hope this helps.
