« Part 32: Shopquest 2017! New Saw Up! Part 33 of Workshop series no next part

Well I finally did it! I took apart my huge lumber rack, I said I would do it 6 years ago in this blog. I tried to adapt it but it just stil took up too much floor space for what i needed to really keep in the shop.

The good news is like most things in my shop it was primarily assembled with 2×4s and pocket screws. So I was able to totally dismantle the entire thing in about an hour and now have a wood that will be recylcled into a few other shop projects.

The best part is that I gained a huge amount of space in the shop.

I have some plans for this space already of course as well as another plan to possibly add another few feet back to the shop. first though I’m going to pick up another of these shelves from the big orange place and put some of the wood I am keeping on it.


This one was bought a few weeks ago and currently looks nothing like this picture as I just started piling wood from the rack around it.

Glad to have it out of the way and now to March onward.

Reorganizing the shop can be just as much fun as working on a project especially when it works out. We change, projects change , so why not the shop. Good luck with the new space.

Thanks guys. Great Tony now I have that sung stuck in my head. Thankfully it does not though as I woudl not be allowed in my shop at this point.

The current sign is actually the dates and reminders for the swap. Usually it is above my lathe, but with as many projects as my daughter has to complete before the end of the school year her sign is above the lathe. Started the concept a few swaps ago and found it is useful to help keep on track.

Dave, Rearranging and figuring out the shop has always been one of the parts.

Let’s make sure that any wood gets offered up for fellow LJs before it makes its way to the burn pile ;-)

Hate to say it but a fair amount went out this morning with the trash. lots of pine, floor boards and trim. I still have my stash of logs that I need to get cutting and figure out setting up a stabilizing chamber somewhere.
Next weekend is a pile of misc plywood and OSB pieces that I swore I would use someday.
