I have been wanting to make this ever since I saw Steve Ramsey do the build video. Last weekend I bought about 140BdFt of walnut, cherry and maple in a variety of thicknesses, so it was time get the lumber rack organized. I set all this new lumber on some saw horses only to discover this morning that the weight was too much and found it all on the floor (see photo 4). I spent about $150 and 7 hrs today including my Lowes run to get the materials and build this. Should have done it awhile ago. Made from 23/32 sanded plywood and a 150+ screws. Base is 48” x 30” and height is about 47 5/8” from the base.

Yes, I have been wanting to build one of those too.
I am sure it will serve it’s purpose in your shop …. 140BdFt of walnut, cherry and maple, WOW!
If you don’t mind me asking, what did that cost?
And what are you going to build?

I watched Steve build his and saved the video.

If you look at my project posts I build a variety of things. Most of the lumber is S2S with below 10% MC. The guy was a cabinet maker and getting out of that business, I paid $3 bdft. I would have taken more but I have limited space. Here is my supply rack and cart

So FYI- my advice is to not cheap out on the casters. I originally installed 3” plastic wheel locking casters from Lowes and after loading up the rack it was difficult to move around. I changed them out with 4” rubber ones that were like $8 ea. and now moves around easily.
