I’m starting to move my shop into a more spacious room, and the first thing I had to do is to make me a new woodrack. It’s made out of 1,5”x4” construction lumber. I also made me a storage box for cut-offs in different lenghts.

This is a proper lumber storage for a serious woodworker.
Great effort.

Please excuse the drool, but that is a “double-shock”. First, the space for woodstorage is bigger than my entire shop and secondly the wood stored in the rack is to die for. :) Congrats on the new space.

I simply used screws to fasten the beams to the uprights. Four 60mm wooden screws in each connection. Produced them lying at the floor and raised them afterwards. One day work and it was ready for use.

Your wood selection is as nice to look at as your storage solution! I wish I had the room for both!

This is exactly what I was looking for in terms of a design. Does anyone have a recommendation as to what the minimum distance between supports should be for storing lumber? It seems like this and others go for about 20-24 inches. I was also looking at I’d like to maximize the distance between the supports so as to save some money, but I also want to do things right.

I have the space, but have most of my lumber in piles on the floor. I need some of the floor space, so this would be ideal.

It has to be said, “Nice rack!”

Well done and it looks very versatile. I agree that it is almost as big as my shop as well. But if you’ve got the space, use it!

You could have stored it at my house.
I would not have used the wood for any of my projects. HaHa

Great job
