Using wood can save money on heating, especially if you cut your own. However, by storing properly on log rack, rain and clay cannot cause it to rot or be too moist to burn. At worst, the wood will rot to the degree of decay. This basic form of storage will keep your wood dry and combustible. It will work in almost every place as long as it gets stuck properly.
Place the pallets against the side of your house, hide, on the porch or under an overhang. Sort the wood, separate the logs from igniting — some logs or branches thinner than your forearm. Stack the logs 3-meter high evenly across the pallets. Make one layer at a time. Stack the logs 1-foot higher on two of the pallets. Place the ignition on the third pallet. When it’s time to build your fire it will be easier to collect both the ignition and the logs. Hang the tarp over the wood. Cover the top completely but leave the sides loose. Secure the rope through the loophole and tie it to the pallet. Leaving the sides loosely allows the air to continue to circulate below and cure the wood.
Tips and warnings
Alternate concrete blocks for pallets, if available or if you cannot find treated pallets. Large ignition in a separate container if you want to save space on the pallet. Do not store in the house. Outdoor log rack prevents habitual pests from attacking your home. Do not store more than 4 meters high. Buy more pallets if it does not fit on the three. Do not keep on the bar. Even a tarp under the wood is better than nothing. As a do-yourself project, you can do positions in many different sizes, shapes and styles, and from several types of materials. The purpose of a wood rack is to keep wood dry.
The spice is the process of drying wood over time. Most wood will take between six months and one year to season. When seasoned, the wood must remain dry until you need to burn it in a fireplace. A rack to keep working during the spice process should be robust to hold the weight of wood, stable to withstand wind drift through the bundle and structured to keep ends stack out of collapse. It has to keep the wood from moving the ground. The shelf must also be large so that you can leave space between the logs for air circulation, means the principle that water is taken from wood. A sunny place will speed up the process.
