Wagon Wheel Firewood Holder
This past winter we created a really handy wood holder that sits on the porch and can be removed during summer when we donít need firewood.
Our Idaho ranch was homesteaded in 1884 and we still have some freight wagons from 100 years ago that were parked here as their final resting place. The wagon wheels have heavy iron rims.
We took a couple matching big rims, and welded some spacing bars between them to create the wood holder, then made a stand for the bottom using old leaf springs from a Model T car that was also sitting out in the bushes.
This double hoop holds a couple daysí worth of wood for the stove that heats our old ranch house. The hoop firewood holder makes a lot neater storage spot than the old messy pile on the porch.
