    I have always had problems with stacking firewood next to our fence, had to start at the gate and slowly "ramp up"
    to the top of the stack. A few times the stack shifted and collapsed when getting wood. So i built this bookend thing.
    I plan on adding a 2x4 top and bottom and screwing on some cedar pickets to match the fence. It works great!

    I have a concrete driveway so i can't just drive stakes in the ground.
    This has 3 feet that extend under the woodpile about 3 ft. I think it will look good with the cedar attached.

    Sounds like you know your stuff.
    Yeah, couldn't be more fun. Have only done 2 river floats so far this year. Did 15 last summer.
    Hopefully next weekend!
