There used to be about a 4 four foot high stack of assorted 10-16 ft maple and walnut sticks here. I cut it up into 3 foot stock that I will use for cutting boards and made a couple of tables that serve as both lumber racks as well as support for the miter saw. My shop is so much more spacious and functional now.

That is a lot of cutting board stock. And a good use of space.

I would have been concerned cutting up that much material, as soon as I did I would end up needing some 4ft pieces…

That’s a very practical setup. Nice work!

Rusty, you and me both. I actually put off doing this for months because I was worried I’d need longer stock and finally just bit the bullet. Much happier now, and I did keep a few longer pieces, just in case :)

Glad you have everything sorted the way you like it.

Must be tough with cinder block walls trying to store things.

But, I have faith you will come up with something ingenious to add storage on the walls.

Thanks for sharing. Looks great.
