With the recent weather of snow, thaw, freeze, rain; I had some water come into my shop door (tuck under garage). Made this dunnage from treated lumber to fit the space. Used deck screws that resist corrosion. I made the arches with a hole saw on drill press.

DeSwede. I like your solution, but the wood platform will still soak up some water, and it may transfer to your lumber….If you add some plastic spacers between the platform and the floor, it will solve it. Plastic shims or rings cut from plastic pipe work well.

Do you train mice as well?

Great solution for the water to save the wood

How ‘bout this, I’ll find what PVC pipe size will give me about 1-1/2” inside dia (or slightly less to give it grip) and slip those onto the bottoms? They’ll be round, but do the trick and have some grip so I don’t have to fasten somehow. That would probably also make it unnecessary to have the 1/2 holes for drainage.

I’m always tweaking to make it better. Thanks for the ideas.
