  1. Against wall ceiling mounted wood rack

    So I had a very specific problem. I made some simple angled wall brackets (following Jay's design, see http://jayscustomcreations.com/2013/12/5-lumber-rack/) for storing some lumber, but when it came time to install the top row, I couldn't find any studs. Turns out the top 3 feet or so of...
  2. Lumber Storage Rack

    So, it's been a long time since I actually had the time to finish anything…. I've come down with Bell's Palsy (half of my face is paralyzed) the last few weeks and it has slowed me down enough to finish a project. In order to do any of the things I want to, I had to start storing things...
  3. Simple Rolling Lumber Cart

    I threw this together over the weekend as a way to get a stack of redwood up off the floor and mobile. I will probably reinforce the sides with some plywood and perhaps put some type of handle on it to make it easier to push. About $60 in materials including wood, hardware and some Harbor...

  5. Some more lumber storage projects!

    Well, after Christmas I looked around the shop and realized that I had way to much short wood on hand. I keep cutting other wood down to small sizes as I need, instead of using all of this stuff. Mainly cause it was to hard to find. I do have a bad case of keepus crappus that I shouldntus…..plus...
  6. Swing-away cutoff storage ladders

    Out of mind, but not out of site ! I built hanging ladders for cutoff storage between the joists in the 9' loft. The rungs are 12 " apart , so I can easily tell how long the pieces of wood are. Even when they're between the joists, all I do is look up and can see the stock and the length at a...
  7. DIY Mobile Lumber Cart | Plans from Woodworking for Mere Mortals

    My latest woodworking build: a mobile lumber cart! I followed plans from Woodworking for Mere Mortals. Steve Ramsey has a great build video for the project. You can check out the video on his YouTube channel. This lumber cart replaces a previous one that I built a few years ago. My old lumber...
  8. Giant Goomba Lumber Cart

    I built a a 4′ tall 8-bit Goomba that doubles as a lumber storage cart. This is not the most practical of lumber carts, but it was a fun project that fits with my growing collection of retro video game garage decor. I documented project details on my blog. You can read the steps about it here...
  9. Lumber storage

    Nothing that hasn't already been designed, built, and posted here, but this project was new to me, and what a relief (as you can see from the before picture) to get my sheet goods and scraps organized! A couple of minor differences I hadn't seen though: Instead of heavy duty casters, I used...
  10. Too Much Wood!!

    I was in desperate need of a lumber organization solution. About a month ago I came across the WWMM Lumber Cart…it was the perfect solution. Here is video of the build along with a cut drawing and detailed plans….http://www.woodworkingformeremortals.com/2013/01/make-rolling-lumber-cart.html...
  11. Boutique lumber cart with Winglets

    On the bottom floor of my Village house I have a small kitchen that we don,t use, we use the space for storage and slowly but surely it has been filling up with bits of lumber. I thought best I get to and build a lumber rack to sort out the mess. (besides building the rifle was doing my eyes and...
  12. Lumber Rack in Two Days

    So lets get this out of the way… I have a bit of a problem with wood. Anytime someone has a load of scraps it's hard for me to turn them down. Over time though I started taking some things straight to my storage garage that is two minutes from my house. It's become a bit of a mess and I've been...
  13. Sheet Goods Cart - no more leaning!

    With most sheet goods rack designs, the sheets are on one side, with stock on the other. So the sheets all lean to one side on each other, which makes it a hassle to look through them, and to hold up the ones in front while pulling out a sheet deeper in the stack. I built this cart with all...
  14. Compact Lumber Storage Cart

    A few years ago I designed and built a large and versatile lumber storage cart that had tons of storage for long boards, short boards, small off cuts, and even panel sheet goods. I have loved having this large cart for keeping things organized, but I've reached a point where I need to reclaim...
  15. There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)

    I just recently celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary, and as part of the celebration my wife and I took a private wood turning class together (neither of us having ever turned anything before). I was able to set this up at McLaughlin Woods, where I had recently taken a joinery class. We had...
  16. Lumber Rack

    I needed a quick, cheap, and sturdy rack to get my lumber off the garage floor but I also had a constraint from my wife of "no holes in the walls." That meant a lot of the easiest/best designs that just bolt to the wall were off the table. This rack uses sets of homemade I-beams - built with...
  17. lumber storage cart From WWMM

    Just finished my lumber cart with plans and cut list from Steve Ramsey web site Woodworking for Mere Mortals. I used 3/4" shop grade maple ( I guess a little over the top, but I wanted it to match my router table) I used 4, 3" Clear Polyurethane Swivel Caster, (2 With Brakes) from harbor...
  18. inital shadow box

    customer wanted a simple letter to hang above her fireplace and of course i said "we can do better than that" so this is what i came up with. I wanted it to be like my wife…simple, classy, and nice! only thing i would have done different is a 3×4 inch back also. I recessed dowels in the "W" to...
  19. Free-Standing Wood Storage Rack

    Overview I'm putting the finishing touches on my basement shop. In previous shops I built open racks about 12" deep that I attached directly to the studs and installed above my large cut-off table. However, I had an insulated concrete form home built and I don't have a lot of confidence in the...
  20. Much needed Lumber Rack

    First project in my new shop, needed to get the lumber off the floor so I decided on a Lumber rack first. All made from 2×4 & 1×4 material trimmed to 3" wide and gluded and screwed together. All the pieces were cut on a 2 deg. angle to keep boards from sliding and rack from sagging. Anchored to...
