Firewood Bundler Box




About: I am a DIY kinda guy

If you have ever tried to wrap and bundle firewood, you know how difficult it is to keep the form so you can tie rope or shrink wrap around the logs. This frame saved me some time and frustration after several attempts to hold the form. Hopefully, you can use the same concept as you get ready to sell firewood or pack for your next camping trip.

Step 1: Gather Wood Logs

Gather wood logs that are uniform in length for bundling. I found that the ideal length averages around 20 inches for this fire pit.

Step 2: Find Box or Build One

I found that a plastic milk crate works well for fitting in logs. Alternatively, you can build a frame using left over scrap lumber with similar dimensions of 13 inches by 14 inches. Cut wood to size and drive in 2.5 inch screws to the wood ends.

Step 3: Wrapping

Put firewood logs into the box frame and start wrapping. I found that stretch wrap was ideal for wrapping instead of string rope. Flip over and wrap other end if more tie is needed.

Step 4: Repeat

Repeat steps above for next bundle.

    Hi, this is a really good idea. However, is it really necesarry to wrap firewood in plastic? You produce a huge amount of plastic waste, especially when going camping. If one would bundle the wood with natural fiber string, one could even burn it bundled or use the string as tinder.

    PS: Please don't tell me that you burn the plastic ...

    Good idea. Bundles are a lot easier to move around than a huge pile of loose wood.
