This project was a bit of fun, we were on the Farm in Australia and had a load of rough cut Australian gum tree and Blood wood branches that we collect from the paddock. We love to burn them for outdoor cooking on the BBQ along with boiling the Billy in the mornings, The Mrs mentioned that we need to stack it more neatly.

As the Farm is quite new I dont have much lying about, I did however find a 6 meter length of 4×1 moldy rough sawn pine that had previously been used as garden bed boundary, a small piece of 1/2 inch ply and a couple of 3×1 pieces of architrave. Also I had a roll of chicken coupe wire, a few screws and nails , saw and some tie wire.

It was about 3 in the afternoon and we wanted to light the fire for about 5PM happy hour, the apprentice (Mrs) helped out and loved the finished product.

Basic project yes BUT very functional and I am tipping it will be on the farm for years to come.

Thanks for reading

just can’t beat using what some would consider scrap and turning it into a functional piece of equipment

Indeed , Very little cost and by default it worked quite good letting the airflow around the firewood pieces whilst keeping them stored tidy.
Thanks for the comment
