or what I did on my day off.

The shop is ever evolving and I decided last week there was just too much wood litterally laying around. So I looked at various racks built here (thanks to everyone that posted one) and came up with a few of my own ideas. Since I have a small basement shop (with no walk out) I rarely get large sheet goods. I built the rack 6’ long by 3’ wide the storage area is 18” across. The rack is on six swivel casters as I do have stuff all around the rack. I also added some pegboard I had left laying around to aid in storing my larger clamps, more then likely add more pegboard later if I have some long pieces from something.

As is usually the case the new rack is already pretty much filled to capacity. That space at the bottom is reserved for stuff in the garage. Oh well.

It looks good! I see that you can store sheet goods too. Good idea.

Great looking storage rack and very mobile, I wish I had more room in my shop for something like that.

Thanks all for the comments. I had some time last night and added some of the stuff from my garage to it. Glad I went with the heavy duty casters, it moves around great and yes everything with the exception of my main bench is mobile.

Thanks Jay. It has only officially moved once now from one side of my shop to other, but I am really glad it is on heavy casters and I could move it still loaded.
This blog shows a few of the recent changes I made to the unit in order to better manage smaller pieces.
