I saw this idea on Jay's page first, and have seen versions of it as well. I’m extremely happy with the results, and planning even to add some more to the adjacent wall with maybe 2 pipes at the highest elevation only, and small, single pipe, segments running over the window. I also need to find some kind of caps, plastic hopefully, for the lowest racks just for some added safety. I decided to make one with my own twist(s) which include:1) mine is attached to a CMU wall instead of ...
I wasn’t getting much shop time over the last few weeks due to my Dad’s health and issues. He’s somewhat better and holding his own thankfully, so I’ve had some time this week to get back here and work on a few little projects. I’ve been wanting to install the Wynn filter I bought for the DC and make a cyclone of sorts, so that’s just what I did. I had a 15g fiber drum hanging around and some Dustrite fittings I purchased for this, so that’s what...
I’ve been using an angle iron based lumber rack for years. Recently I upgraded it by building some very attractive shelving to hold my lumber. In this video I provide background and construct the new shelving.
Wow that first post got a little wordy (I should really learn to take more/better pictures) well moving right along. So we have the upper shelf section done now with the design I am going for I want to tuck my vertical storage underneath it and behind my movable sheet goods cart. Depth here is going to be an issue (I have bid shop envy) as we still only have 2’ to work with so lets consider what kind of space that cart will take up. I have decided the base of my cart will be a 2...
A couple of days ago I started on a wall-mounted lumber rack in the dungeon. At that time I had barely enough room to get around the Black and Decker Power Mate and various stuff laying around, including the destructed pallet wood I had in various piles on the floor. Here is what my workspace looked like while I was constructing the rack: Because of the limited space, I didn’t want to use the miter saw in this project. This past summer I bought a Stanley FatMa...
HEY! Hello LJ’ers. I have been super busy in my shop and in my garage lately. YES… there is a difference. There USED to be a garage at my house and now it is a wood shop. On the other hand… two minutes away from my house is a storage garage. :) Anyhow… here is one of the many projects that I’ve been working on. The tote storage racks helped a bunch. And it motivated me to get the lumber racks done. I plan on building two. I have one done. So…. I did this kinda backwards this...
This was the mess you saw when first entering my shop. (Notice the picture taped to the wall with blue tape)...Bonnie asked me what was that little picture taped to the wall for? I explained that this was the wall where I would build a lumber rack, and that was a print screen I stole from Jay’s Custom Creations to remind myself of what I wanted to do there... .. . Now it just so happens that I have been tripping over two 2” X12” X16’ boards that someone was ...
This is a short ( 1 1/2 minute) video of making my lumber rack, as seen in my shop tour video. Link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leEZavoXgOc
I found the need for a lumber rack, and knew I wanted to orient the lumber vertically. From my many lumber shopping adventures, I find it easier to sort through and retrieve lumber from vertical racks. -----The far left compartment is for sheet goods. The rest of the rack will store hardwood. -----The rack is made from 2x lumber which ties into the top plate of an exterior wall, and to a beam. -----The brackets are made of scrap white oak.-----They are assembled with dados, glue and scre...
So as I mentioned in my earlier blogs for this year’s ShopQuest I wanted to get rid of my wood rack. I decided that was going to take a major effort and instead to do a little better allocation of space on it and see how it works this year. I spent a weekend cleaning it up and finding space for some of the wood and getting rid of some of it as well. I am not a fan of throwing out wood but some of it just was not going to be useful at all. I narrowed it down a little further and used pie...
