I found that stacking wood on the ground was taking up a lot of floor space. Above where the wood was, There are some cabinets. And then I thought, what if I could stack my wood on top of the cabinets. I built some beams that would hold the wood so the cant fall down. The beams are screwed into the cabinets with pocket hole joints. Here’s a photo of the rack complete,

Thanks for looking!

Just make sure the cabinets are attached strongly enough to hold the additional weight of the wood. This is a great plan to use some available space that would be wasted otherwise. I need to come up with a way to get my wood out of the traffic areas.

Double down on making sure those cabinets are WAY secure to the wall… I ripped a set of cabs off my shop wall that way… If you are using cleats, 3” screws through the cleats, and into each, and every stud goes a LOT way…
