last yr we had a tremdous amt of snow, my husband had shoulder surgery in dec. so we brought wood inside and stacked on floor . worked really well but was a mess and scuffed up the woodwork and wall. so we designed and built this,its made of angle iron pipe and steel rod. we live in the forest so did a design of birch which i painted. i really like functional design and rustic works well in our home. we had most of the materials already. painting birch is almost no fail but the tops of the pipe took some patience, i wanted it to look like cross cut log.

Pattern or design used: My own design
