I made this lumber rack from a plan I saw in a magazine

I had to buy 1 plank of 3/4 – I should have bought 2 but I got cheap and used some 5/8 scrap I had on hand and of course now it’s starting to lean – I’ll replace the 5/8 one day LOL

Most of this is scrap I had laying around

The wheels I got from a harbor freight dolly that was on sale for 8.00 (I bought 5 of them). The wheels are actually better than the dolly (4” inch wheels cost about $4 each so I saved $8 on each dolly), so I took off the wheels and replaced them with smaller wheels.

I now use the larger wheels on other things like my shop, reloading and outdoor garden tables – saved me quite a bit of money switching those wheels around!

The handle makes it easier to move around – also not seen behind the rack is where sheet goods go – I keep the sheet goods in place by using some tie down straps – otherwise they fall when the rack is moved out from the wall

-- They said I could be anything... So I became Sarcastic! They also said making drawers is easy... I think they lied :(

You’ve been busy. Lots of project posts. ...The rack will fill up fast, but you’ll be organized…....Jigs are a woodworkers best friend. I’m sure you will be building more in time….Well done

Thanks kdc68 – yah been a long few months and finally got enough jigs made to be able to make a few things now

Seems like all I did all winter was make jigs, throw jigs away, re-make jigs – rinse and repeat LOL
