Shop Shifting #7: Upgrade Lumber Storage

02-05-2021 04:57 PM by sras | 8 comments »

This project is part of a sequence to enable a new tool in the shop. I had been struggling with how to get space improvements for quite a while. Then a few years ago my cousin was visiting and her husband suggested getting my lumber storage off the floor. Perfect! Here is where I started. This rack has 4 shelves. They ended up being overloaded and I had to reinforce them with plywood gussets. The floor has all sorts of smaller pieces laying around. There is a plywood storage unit below...

a gas-pipe lumber rack #3: post preparation

06-04-2019 10:02 PM by metolius | 0 comments »

About a half mile from my home is the lumber yard of I go there at times to browse through their slabs and imagine some of them sitting up on a new lumber rack in the garage. They specialize in stocking slabs derived from local trees cut down for disease or construction. Most of this is soft-maple, walnut, western cedar, and myrtle. They’ll sometimes even have provenance papers on the slabs that document the where, when, and why of the slab’s histor...

Shop Projects #1: Copy of Jay Bates Conduit Lumber Rack

09-12-2016 07:23 PM by Rob_s | 2 comments »

I saw this idea on Jay's page first, and have seen versions of it as well. I’m extremely happy with the results, and planning even to add some more to the adjacent wall with maybe 2 pipes at the highest elevation only, and small, single pipe, segments running over the window. I also need to find some kind of caps, plastic hopefully, for the lowest racks just for some added safety. I decided to make one with my own twist(s) which include:1) mine is attached to a CMU wall instead of ...

New Shop in the Raw #10: State of the Shop Part 3

04-14-2016 08:09 PM by builtinbkyn | 2 comments »

I wasn’t getting much shop time over the last few weeks due to my Dad’s health and issues. He’s somewhat better and holding his own thankfully, so I’ve had some time this week to get back here and work on a few little projects. I’ve been wanting to install the Wynn filter I bought for the DC and make a cyclone of sorts, so that’s just what I did. I had a 15g fiber drum hanging around and some Dustrite fittings I purchased for this, so that’s what...

Prettified Lumber Rack

I’ve been using an angle iron based lumber rack for years. Recently I upgraded it by building some very attractive shelving to hold my lumber. In this video I provide background and construct the new shelving.

Lumber Storage/Shop improvements #2: Continuing on with the lumber storage

04-18-2015 01:28 AM by McDade | 2 comments »

Wow that first post got a little wordy (I should really learn to take more/better pictures) well moving right along. So we have the upper shelf section done now with the design I am going for I want to tuck my vertical storage underneath it and behind my movable sheet goods cart. Depth here is going to be an issue (I have bid shop envy) as we still only have 2’ to work with so lets consider what kind of space that cart will take up. I have decided the base of my cart will be a 2...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #21: Dungeon Gets A Lumber Rack

11-21-2014 01:22 PM by retired_guru | 6 comments »

A couple of days ago I started on a wall-mounted lumber rack in the dungeon. At that time I had barely enough room to get around the Black and Decker Power Mate and various stuff laying around, including the destructed pallet wood I had in various piles on the floor. Here is what my workspace looked like while I was constructing the rack: Because of the limited space, I didn’t want to use the miter saw in this project. This past summer I bought a Stanley FatMa...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #12: Time for a new Lumber Rack

11-11-2014 01:32 AM by AngieO | 10 comments »

HEY! Hello LJ’ers. I have been super busy in my shop and in my garage lately. YES… there is a difference. There USED to be a garage at my house and now it is a wood shop. On the other hand… two minutes away from my house is a storage garage. :) Anyhow… here is one of the many projects that I’ve been working on. The tote storage racks helped a bunch. And it motivated me to get the lumber racks done. I plan on building two. I have one done. So…. I did this kinda backwards this...

New Shop building! #9: ... Rack 'em up!

09-25-2014 03:01 PM by JoeinGa | 6 comments »

This was the mess you saw when first entering my shop. (Notice the picture taped to the wall with blue tape)...Bonnie asked me what was that little picture taped to the wall for? I explained that this was the wall where I would build a lumber rack, and that was a print screen I stole from Jay’s Custom Creations to remind myself of what I wanted to do there... .. . Now it just so happens that I have been tripping over two 2” X12” X16’ boards that someone was ...
