Advice on lumber strength Check out the full project I'm planning on building a small firewood rack to keep on my back porch (preliminary sketch here). It'll be about 5' tall 2' wide and 1' deep with an upper rack for kindling.To keep things simple (and cheap) I'll build it entirely from either 2x2 or 2x4 lumber and for aesthetic reasons I'm hoping to stick with 2x2.Since it'll hold firewood however it might need to support as much as 300 lbs. of weight.

For more durability I might substitute milled lumber uprights (cedar poles?) for the branch uprights in this project. I do like the idea of using "waste" material for the majority of the project, though.

I just asked my husband to build this. I think that made him feel manly so he just might! He's built a baby cradle, cat & dog houses, cow feeder, rabbit cage stand, fences, etc. and often without plans so this looks fairly simple.
