    That's about what I want to build K.A.M., About how high off the ground are they & what's on bottom to keep it off ground?

    Lightbulb

    if i was to build one i would definitely coat it in a spray on type bed liner like you can get at most any auto outlet. even walmart has some. it ranges from $3-$8 a can depending on maker. i used the $3 version on the inside of my dump trailer for my lawn mower 6+ years ago and its still rut free after numerous dirt, rock, sticks, scrap steel loads, and about any thing else i could load it full of over the years. it might be a good option for a steel treatment for the wood rack as well, look into it as an option.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    roho, if you place the racks on the ground the wood will be 31/2'' off the ground, I put 3 pieces of the 11/4'' pipe on the bottom of the racks. I had some old bricks and raised them off the ground higher for now because plans are to have concrete where they are later on.

    Default wood rack

He has a Franklin heater that takes 12 to 14 inch split wood. & as far as buying one, he was just trying to push a little work toward me & wanted it built out of a little heavier material! Anyway THANKS for feedback & any help you can give!
    I build this design for a fire wood customer it's simple and in expensive but sturdy as well
    In sizes 4' to 8'
