Country Lore: DIY Firewood Cart

These two ladies didn't need to buy a new firewood cart. With a few modifications, a surplus welding cart did the same job just as well.

| October/November 2010

Because our budget did not permit purchasing a manufactured firewood cart, we designed our own using an inexpensive welder’s cart, hardware cloth, “zip strips,” and two steel shelf supports. It allows us to carry a greater volume of firewood to our porch without straining our backs.

The approximate assembly time was 30 minutes and the cost was less than $50. We found the welding cart at a building supply surplus store. We’ve been using the firewood cart effectively for three years.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
