I designed and made this sturdy log carrier (here modeled reluctantly by my bf next to the woodstove...) and it is holding up well so far after 2 months of use. I am pretty darn happy about it. I picked a sturdy canvassy type fabric that was being outstocked for only a buck a yard.  the dowels I got at Home Depot.  The whole thing cost prolly around four bucks to make.  Jippee Jahoo!!

It looks very sturdy, but it also looks like it would be very heavy when it's full.  Nice job on it though.

Ooooooo- great idea!  I need to make one of these, as we are having an insert installed Wed or Thursday. 

Thanks for posting!
