Time to start getting the new shop in order.
Tore down the drywall and added insulation(thankfully half the wall was done).
Put up 3/4” osb and added some lumber storage.
I am hoping to get most of the clamp racks done tomorrow.

Looks good from here. Ends aren’t on concrete & I like the base.

thats a great way to store boards wish i had the room.osb for the walls is the perfect wall covering,i see you went real heavy with 3/4” any reason you preferred that over 1/2” as most do ?

Great and effective way to store lumber. I did the same in my shop years ago and love it. One recommendation, run a rope on the end of your partition sticks to prevent the boards to fall when you are looking thru your stock

I wanted ans excuse to throw my back out. Lol. I did alot of reading and I definitely saw most people go with half inch osb but I was paranoid that a screw may pull out of half inch. I am sure half inch would of been fine but with my wife parking next to the wall I wanted a little more peace of mind.

That’s how I store my lumber, vertically. I used to store it horizontally but that always resulted in two problems:
More warping even when I stickered and, of course, the board I wanted was always at or near the bottom.
Now, everything is more accessible. I have dividers but I like your pegs as a better idea. I’ll be making the change.

This is a great idea for shorter boards. I have my long boards on a rack, but the space under the rack is wasted right now and the shorts get stacked into the boards on the rack. Looks like this is a way to kill 2 birds with one stone – get the shorts out of the racks and make it easier to find what I’m looking for without having to dig through the stacked up long boards.

I built a shop in 2018 and used OSB but I used 3/4 inch pipe with pipe flange bolted to the wall at the studs. Also added pipe caps, drilled a hole for an eye bolt and then used rubber stretch straps with “s” hooks to hold the lumber at each space. Yours is a lot neater than mine, I may have more work to do. Great idea. Thanks. What is the purpose of the wood platform, if your concrete floor does not get wet?

Correct on why it’s on a platform. Ty
