I sold my old lumber storage solution which was… inelegant, to put it lightly. I am purposely storing this set of lumber outside, half because I ran out of room in my indoor storage, but also to have a bit of weathered wood handy, should the need arise. I went simple with this, using some pallet runners, I bored some holes at a slight angle ever so slightly undersized for the conduit pieces I had prepared as shelf supports. I then attached the wood brackets to the wall and hammered in the shelf supports. I limited the amount of vertical and horizontal space available on the shelf so I wouldn’t be tempted to overload it with wood. It seems that 12” height and 12” depth is a reasonable amount of space that won’t cause shelf support collapse under the weight of the wood. It was a quick and easy solution to a common problem and I hope you enjoy the video and find some inspiration in the process. Thanks for watching!
