Saturday in the Woodworking Shop #8: Dehumidifying Lumber Storage

07-14-2015 02:35 PM by AndyPitts | 2 comments »

Today I’m talking about how I maintain my lumber stash ready for building furniture where I live in humid eastern Virginia. Left to it’s own in an unconditioned space, my kiln dried lumber (6-8% MC) would gradually migrate toward 12 % MC, so I’ve solved that by dehumidifying my storage location. Nothing high tech, here, but it works. In my work I like to start out with wood of a known moisture content, approximately the equilibrium moisture content for the intended environme...

Some past projects, #4: Shop projects

04-29-2015 09:39 PM by Silverhill | 6 comments »

Being new to woodworking, shop projects are a large part of my efforts as new tools come into the shop and the shop becomes more of a shop than a garage. I am refurbishing one wall at a time, so please keep that in mind when an unfinished wall comes into view. This was an early project to get my clamps out of the way. It was just a simple box placed on said unfinished wall. please excuse the trailer park curtains. They have been replaced now with the mini blinds. :) This is t...

Shop Organization #1: Vertical Lumber Rack

06-02-2014 04:25 PM by pintodeluxe | 15 comments »

I found the need for a lumber rack, and knew I wanted to orient the lumber vertically. From my many lumber shopping adventures, I find it easier to sort through and retrieve lumber from vertical racks. -----The far left compartment is for sheet goods. The rest of the rack will store hardwood. -----The rack is made from 2x lumber which ties into the top plate of an exterior wall, and to a beam. -----The brackets are made of scrap white oak.-----They are assembled with dados, glue and scre...

Racking My Brain!

04-11-2011 06:33 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 14 comments »

Download Low ResolutionDownload High ResolutionSubscription Options Why Bother?The lumber rack is the unsung hero of the woodworking shop. Its responsible for holding our raw materials safely, securely, and in an organized fashion until we’re ready to use them. Let’s face it: we are all wood hoarders when it comes down to it and most of us over-buy lumber intentionally. So if you plan on amassing anything that can be called a wood “collection” you need a sturdy pl...

Hanging Shorts Storage

04-05-2009 04:10 AM by sIKE | 12 comments »

Well get this done, despite my best efforts. The design I posted works well. I did make a couple of changes though. It is deeper than originally planed. The other is on the back inside bottom I used my pocket hole jig to make a couple of 1”x1” runners for the plywood to screw into. I also used the same thing up front to create a lip. It is working as planned, I have freed up an entire shelf on my Rack that is on my wall.

Sketchup Conception and First Phase

12-28-2008 06:25 AM by johngoes | 4 comments »

First I wish to embarrass myself – the following picture is of the garage storage area that came with my house: My wife and I have organized and re-organized that shelf so many times but it always becomes a collecting place for junk. So, I am going to replace that wall with the locker and cabinets on the left side of this sketchup drawing: To get from the wall of horror to the neat cabinet wall first requires that I rip out the existing shelving and that will happen when w...

Need to find new storage for my lumber

11-30-2008 11:11 AM by daiku1 | 5 comments »

in my current shop, I built home-made storage arms out of 2×4’s and plywood. Most of my lumber is stored horizontally. I would like to move my lumber out of the shop and into a storage building, where I would like to store it vertically. I need to do this to gain some space for a jointer/planer coming my way. I am somewhat worried about warpage. Can anyone tell me if they have had good luck with vertical storage? Any tricks?

Remodel the Shop #1: Initial Sketchup Drawing - ideas welcome

03-06-2008 02:52 AM by Kevin | 19 comments »

Well, I finally sat down last night night and drew up the shop. This was the first attempt, so it may change some. Also most of the tools/cabinets are very rough or borrowed. I’ll try to get them better when gets closer to constructing them. I’ll start you out on the East wall. Most of this is already set in stone you might say. I am planning on putting a pipe rack over the double garage door. May get used for dimensional lumber storage as well. On the left is my double ...
