I’ve been checking out everyone’s amazing projects and learning much in the process. I thought maybe I would share a couple of my projects.

Project 1: I needed a way to organize and store my dowels, aluminium angle, etc. and I saw something in ShopNotes that fit the bill so I made it. It has stalls for different length stock and drawers to hold smaller items. It’s hung on the wall via french cleat. The drawers slide on thin runners and have a shallow dado on the bottom to keep them centered in the opening—no drawer stop.

Project 2: I needed a way to store and organize pipe and bar clamps. This consists of a 1.5” thick mounting bar (2*3/4” plywood) about 24” long and 2” wide—mounted to the concrete wall with Tapcon screws. The supports are framing lumber cut 7.5” wide by about 9” with a dado cut to match the width of the mounting bar. I counterbored and used long lag screws to secure the support to the mounting bar.
