While both are great fireplace accessories that make firewood log storage easier, a log holder differs from a log rack. A firewood log rack or firewood storage rack allows you to store excess wood in a safe and convenient place. Outdoor firewood racks also keep the wood off the ground, which protects it from the damp earth, helps it stay dry, and keeps it free of bugs.
Log holders allow you to store a limited amount of wood inside. These options sit inside instead of out to allow for easy access to the wood. Some log holder option also include a fire set or fireplace tools to help tend to the fire.
Where you store your firewood can impact the quality of your experience. Placing storage racks in the wrong spot can cause more issues than you might realize. When deciding where you want to store your firewood, consider the following:
Whether going indoors or outdoors, log carriers offer an easy way to transport wood to any fire pit or fireplace. Log carriers typically consist of a durable fabric to reduce the risk of tears or splinters. They also offer the added benefit of keeping any debris, like wood chippings, bark, or dirt, contained within the carrier. That way, you don’t have to deal with a mess on the floor or on your hands!
