Pictures of inside the New Wood Room…I think it is going to work out just fine.
The plywood rack swings out away from the wall for easy access. Picture looks weird, but it is stable.

You callin it the wood stash house? Nice to have a place to keep and safely store the lumber.

to have a neat, organized wood room is the goal of many and it looks like you nailed it

I like it, I just wish I had the room for one. Good Job, it looks organized.

Thanks everyone…It looks neat and organized now, but if I know me (and I think I do) it’ll look like the rest of the shop in no time…LOL. At least I can find what I need right now….

How do you like the Bora system? I need that solution, but would add more, as you did. Can’t find info re: what capacity is attained by using four btacket sets across an 8’ span, for example.

that swing away ply rack is a great idea i might be able to do that in my shop,makes it a lot easier to get what you need at the back of the the one end looks to be a drop down door with rollers,to bring large boards and sheet goods i assume.another great idea.

With a dedicated room, I would go vertical without a doubt. The piece you need is always on the bottom of the stack.

Smitty_Cabinetshop – I believe the Bora system rates out at 110 lbs per Tine on the rack, that is why I used at least 4 racks for the 8 foot spans, they are secured to the studs by 3” lag bolts.

pottz – I’ve had the panel rack for several years, it wa located in a different part of the shop and I never really got a chance to use it the way it was meant, not enough room. Now I have the room and moving it was easy since it is on wheels. If you take a look at the Wood Room Addition you will see that the drop down door is just that. 18” tall x 5’ wide to allow small boards to full sheets of plywood, MDF, etc..

Rick Dennington – Thank you, and that’s just the stuff I had laying around in the shop taking up workspace.

matt382 – Problem with going vertical is how tall you need the ceiling, Room is 16’ x 10’, but ceiling is only 8 feet at its highest point which is where it attaches to the shop.
