Here’s my lumber storage rack that I made using Steve Ramsey’s plans. It’s basically what his plans made it out to be except I did add some handles to it afterwards for easy mobility. This has been a wonderful addition to my garage as it has cleared up a LOT of mess and to help keep the lumber/scraps off the ground. The picture below is the Before. It didn’t cost very much and has been very effective.

Isn’t it amazing how much space we have once we clean up and store away….but then we don’t know where anything is located.. I kinda enjoy walking around my shop scratching my head looking for something I just laid down. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for all the comments. My garage isn’t all that big, so with the amount of lumber and scraps laying around, I was about to trip over one of them and injure myself sooner or later, so I stopped everything and made this to get all of it out of the way. I think the hard part is coming back to the scraps and actually making something with them…lol..

Those “shorts bins’ (that what I call them) are a great asset to nay shop…..The only difference actually, between mine and yours is that you put dividers in, and I didn’t….I find personally that you have more room w/o the dividers….I built mine about 8 years ago, and it’s held up good, and doing what it’s suppose to do…...Here’s a shot of mine…..Well…...I’ll have to try to post it later…..Can’t get Photobucket to load…....I hate that thing, sometimes…...

Nice build Rick. I can see the benefit of getting rid of the dividers, but it works for me to easily separate species / types of woods into their own bins.

Have your say...
