How To Make A Log Store
Making A Larger Log Store
I created the following "how to" guide in response to the poll I placed on my related how to build a log store lens. If you're one of the ones who voted, please accept my thanks.
For this firewood store I decided that all new timber would be best. It's quite a bit bigger than the one I made from reclaimed pallet wood and using this source again would have made the build much more difficult and, in my opinion, not so good looking.

Not Just Wood Store Plans -
But A Complete Look Over My Shoulder While I Show You What To Do
I based the design of this project on my Heritage 1800 Log Store. If you're in the UK and you'd prefer having one made for you, please visit the website for instructions on how to order one.
My aim with this manual was to take the reader, regardless of their woodworking skill level, by the hand and and show them, through the use of both photographs and written instructions, exactly what to do. By the time it was finished, the manual was 120 pages long, made up of 11800 words and 189 photographs. So you can imagine how detailed it is
Building A Log Store - Photographs
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and when you're trying to explain to another how to build something out of wood, that is so true. Here's a photograph I picked at random to show you what to expect.
It wasn't always the case but very often while I was writing the guide, I imported the next photograph into the document and then described exactly what I was doing. I found that when I wrote my first manual using this technique that I ended up with a set of instructions that was so easy to understand that even a complete novice could follow along.

Making A Log Store - How Big It Will Be
By the time I finished, the log store measured roughly: 48in (1220mm) high, 33 1/2in (851mm) deep and 69 1/2in (1765mm) wide.
Quoting the final capacity can be a little misleading because it all depends how loosely or tightly you stack your logs. The looser the better where log seasoning is concerned. Anyway, based on the dimensions alone, the store will accommodate 1.25 cubic meters (44 cubic feet).

If you're a woodworking novice and would like me to put a guide together showing you how to make a certain something, please let me know. If it seems like something others may want and it's a realistic first project, I'll give it some serious consideration.
