Because I live in a condo with a concrete garage (with gigantic individual stalls), I lack wall studs to use for lumber rack support. So I bolted 2×4s to the back of my storage cabinets and used them for horizontal lumber storage. Nothing has come crashing down on my head so far. The big wooden cabinet was my very first woodworking project, and I recently acquired an old metal cabinet which serves nicely for jig and scrap storage.

Also, having a climate-controlled underground garage shop is pretty fantastic in Minnesota winters.

Edit: the horrible-looking stains on the stepstool in the last photo are wood stain, not blood. I just realized that it looks like someone with terribly lacerated hands grabbed onto that stool.

Thanks! And yeah, big punk rock fan. I’m even an extra in the video for Seeing Double at the Triple Rock :-). The stickers were a rad gift from my wife.

Love the storage solution and love the taste in music just as much! Not a single band on there I don’t like!
