Yep...those look handy. You store them in the dry or cover them outside ?
I ran into a real deal on the metal, so I made them out of sq tube and expanded metal. The one on the photo I set inside our hoop house for use if we get early cold. The one for the shop is on heavy metal casters....set it inside the shop and roll it back beside the wood furnace.
I love the use of the hoop house. Very nice. We get a bit too much snow for visqueen covered structures, I'm afraid. I won't show my DW, she has been after me for a green house forever.
I store these outside with a tarp over the top. When full, the top is almost flat so a tarp keeps them very nice and dry. When I need wood at the house, I drive over and pick up a basket and bring it to the house where I stack it under the 2' eaves. I said they can be stacked but I don't stack them. I too got a deal on some 1" tubing all framed up with expended steel screwed to it - a local auction - I have stacks of the es, some of which is going for a carryall/dumpbucket/ballast for my tractor, man that stuff has gotten pricey.
