I had the need for another wood rack for my deck. I have two already, but last year I had some problems getting to the main pile in my back yard. I thought it would be a good idea to stack some more before the snow flies. The cost should be around $12.00 depending on the cost of 2x4x8s in your area.
(( Just a simple wood rack with dimensions ))

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Tools
4) 2x4x8 (treated or paint)
4) Steel straps
Small box of (2 ½”) deck screws, and some small screws for straps
Drill or driver /// bit to predrill holes
Step 2: Cuts
Take two of the 2x4s and set them aside, they will not be cut at all. From the others cut a (9”) and a (12”) off each end this will leave you with a 75” that needs to be cut in half. See drawing.
Take the two uncut 8’ 2x4s and cap the ends with the 12” peaces, making a box. Put the 37 1/2”s in the box standing up right and cap off with the 9” peaces. The straps were placed as shown in the photos. Predrill for all screws.
