This is the Portamate Wood Rack which I purchased last weekend at Lee Valley. Each level has a weight capacity of 110 lbs. Reasonable price ($39.50), and easy to mount. This is for storing my project woods, as I do mostly scroll saw projects and intarsia. Makes it easy to see what woods I have on hand.

I have enjoyed mine as well. Pretty sturdy, ain’t it ?

Yes, David, it is surprisingly sturdy. I mounted mine with 1/4” x 3 1/2” lag bolts into the wall studs. Uprights are spaced 64” apart. My garage has now been transformed into my workshop, so space is at a premium for me, and this rack is just what I needed to keep my project woods in one place.

A garage bay shop here, too. Our setup with this rack is nearly identical.

Yes….. I have 2 sets of these in my shop. I bought them several years ago from a different woodworking supply dealer. But they are exactly like yours and David’s, just called a different name…I wish I could remember the name…Back then I paid around $70.00 a pair…..Good wood racks….I’m still trying to remember the name…...lol.
