This is the other rack I have. It is also really rough, but is currently serving it’s purpose. I wanted to use the 2×4’s from the walls were we removing from our house for some thing and this sounded like a good idea. I decided to make this and my rolling rack hastily out of rough material because I wanted to try out my design ideas without spending much time or money until I knew if they were going to work.

Once the shop is redone, I may finish it out nicer.

Length is 16’ long, width is 2’, and there is 2’ above it. The pipe under is 1/2” EMT (electrical conduit) and is used for storing pipe.

Right now it is filled with mostly trim and crown molding I got from a hotel I was building. There was a lot of 4” maple crown left that was stained with a cherry stain. Obviously I couldn’t let this land in a dumpster. I have planed some of it down to play with and I know if I can’t find a use for the crown, I can get nice 1/2” x 3 1/2” maple out of it.

Nice stash of ‘free’ material.

That is a good use of dead space. It stores the wood up high and out of the way. I am not sure what you have under it but your rolling cart may fit under here as well. Or you could build a sheet good storage rack under here to keep them out of the way.

Nice looking lumber rack. It is a shame to let all that wood just sit there. How about making some sawdust and whittling the stack down.

I have almost the exact same thing in my shop. I use it for the extra long boards.

My rolling cart does fit underneath for now.

I’m hoping to use part of it to finish off our family room and build our fireplace mantel.

You can’t have too much wood storage!
