I have moved.. and moved a considerable amount of WOOD!

I have updated my lumber rack projects with new photos of the current racks.

My new shop is the entire basement, and to say its bigger than my last basement shop is an understatement. I have four times the space! and at least 88” of height between my floor mats and floor joists!

I have repacked the racks and have collected EVEN MORE WOOD! You see my new house was built in 1918, and the basement had a few excellent resources for me to reclaim some lumber. I will need to make another post, but i have found oak, black walnut, mahogany, and others not yet determined down here! SOME GREATER THAN 13” WIDE!!! Its actually sad to see someone cut the size of these boards down into 2’ shelves… :(

But anyway.. the racks are packed out FULL, there is actually an annex forming along my wall! Time for a third rack? that wont help, because there is even more in the garage..

i do not have a problem, i do not!

I think you are true wood-aholic material. Sounds like a real find and glad to see someone who appreciates wood now owns the stash.

Nothing sadder than seeing good wood go to waste.

Hey, A man (lumberjocks specifically) can NEVER have too many tools or too much wood!!!!!! My wife says I have too much wood (in the form of turning blocks) and I would beg to differ! All this surplus just gives me more choices in what to do next although sometimes it makes it complicated as to which piece of wood to use! I would much rather have too much than not enough and have nothing to do.

You have a good collection!
