Firewood rack

I have a couple of mid-sized oak trees cut on my backyard. I want to build a simple firewood rack. Does any one have any links preferrably with pictures how build firewood rack?

I'm a welder, and I suggest you make it out of metal. A carpenter would probably make it out of wood.
You may be able to find a local welder and have him do it. The job would cost time and materials if I did it. I'd say $150 tops, and you would have a heavy rack that would last a very long time. A smaller lighter one would be less. Compare what you buy and what's for sale out there. There's a lot of differences in metal thicknesses and finishes. You ought to be able to buy a decent one now with all the Chinese stuff around that's powder coated and reasonable.

How simple? Lay two 2 x 4's on the ground about 12" apart. Stack the wood on top of them and chimney stack (criss-cross) the ends. Can't get much cheaper. I stack about 4 to 5 feet high that way.

I'm even simpler but was starting a longer lasting base that will never rot out. I did not want a permanent fixture such as a poured slab, but did want long lasting yet removable. I'm in termite (ground dweller) country so the 2x4 wont last long here.
Cinderblocks (holes up/down for better drainage). About an 8 inch gap between the lines. Didnt bother to criss-cross the wood, just let it taper down at the ends.
I'm looking now to add a frame above which will be easy. A 'railroad tie' fitted into to the cinderblock holes at the ends and a crossbar at the tops plus ones matching along the sides between the 2. Might need some lower down too along the longer section to stabilize it.
