Ken Wingard has a DIY to help keep your fire wood protected in style.


  • Half pallet
  • Roofing shingles
  • Hinges x2
  • Flashing
  • Heavy-duty double-sided tape
  • 2 ½” wood screws
  • Power drill
  • Staple gun
  • ½” staples

1” X 2” WOOD CUT TO:

  • 24” x1

2” X 2” WOOD CUT TO:

  • 24” x4


  • 2’ x 6’ x2


  • Saw


1. Have your wood cut to size at your local hardware store or cut it to measurement yourself.

2. Drill two of the 24” 2” x 2” pieces onto your half pallet, inset 1” from each of the short ends.

3. Lay the two 2’ x 6’ sheets of plywood out with the short ends butted up against each other. Attach the two sheets together with two hinges. This will become the peak of your storage unit.

4. Secure the last two 24” 2”x 2” pieces across the center of each sheet of ply.

5. Stand the plywood up over the half pallet to create a triangle. Screw the bottom of each side into the corresponding 2” x 2” attached to the pallet in multiple places until secure.

6. Now you need to add the “A” support. Screw the 1” x 2” piece into the end of each 2” x 2” that you attached to the center of the plywood.

7. Attach the shingles to each side in rows from the bottom up using your staple gun.

8. Cut a piece of flashing and crease it down the middle. Attach to the peak of your storage unit using heavy-duty double-sided tape.

9. Fill with wood and enjoy!
