My expanding 1/4" plywood - 3 replies

Recently I picked up some plywood from Menards for building some drawers for one of my shop workbenches. I cut the sheets down last night and prepared to do a dry fit for one drawer.

Wood storage design for a garage shop - 5 replies

I’m wanting to get more organized and take the wood that I currently have leaning against my garage wall (sheets, 2x’s, 1x’s scrap, you name it) and build a lumber storage rack. I’m thinking of a vertical storage rack design but I’m not for sure yet. I’ve been milling some of my own lumber with a chainsaw mi...
