Wood stacking ideas – The Most Creative Ways

We all need to store our wood somewhere, and yes you can build a nice firewood storage outside. But if you have the room and time for it then there are some amazingly creative ways to stack your firewood outside.

1. Stacking it around a tree

Normally you stack your firewood between pillars of wood or between two trees. But what if you have only one tree? Well, why not just wrap your firewood around the tree? It looks really nice and it’s easy to do:

2. Creating art while stacking firewood

To keep in the tree line, I really like this one.  Now stacking your wood this way will require some trial and error and you probably won’t want to use the firewood afterwards. But it’s a great way to make something nice out of a pile of firewood

3. Making windows in your wood stack

If you have a lot of firewood stacked in the back of your garden then you might block the nice view you had. So why not create a little window in the firewood stack? You can do this easily with some boards that will hold up the wood.

4. Creating a painting with firewood

This owl has some great detail in it. Using different colors, sizing, and wood type resulted in a beautiful painting. Can’t imagine they will use the wood anytime soon.

5. Animals

Some people create really nice animals with firewood. Take a look at this fish and wild boar. Really amazing how they are created.
