Hey, where do you keep your Dowel stock?

I keep mine in the Gutter.

I’ve got the 4’ piece of plastic Gutter with ends. I put them on, at first, 4 legs that allowed to be parallel when it up or down. Later I changed the legs for Drawer Guides.

I can pull it down and pull it closer to me. Otherwise, it just hides it the up position.

I might have to put an ‘X’ brace between the legs to keep it stable and parallel.

Clever way to keep the out of the way yet close by.

Usually when I bought dowel, it was x 50 or more, so I kept them in their clearly marked boxes. I had an auction before the last move, and all the dowel went, so I have maybe 5 or 6 pieces now, and I just keep it standing in a dead corner with a bunch of other trim.

What do you do on that upper deck, or is it just there to catch the gutter braces?

Is that code where you are to have unsheilded wire on a wall?
