A dream come true. I have Always wanted to have an organized lumber rack and sheet goods rack. I don’t way it took me so long to get around to building it. It only cost $120 and took a weekend to build it.
A couple of y’all have asked about the pipes. They are 1/2” gas pipe that I had cut at the big orange place to 15 1/2 ” long. The holes are 7/8” dia. (outside diameter of the pipe) and are spaced 4” apart for adjustability. They are 3” deep and drilled at a 3 degree angle to keep things from sagging or sliding off. THEY ARE CRAZY STRONG!! I have each vertical piece about 30” apart so the weight distribution is pretty well spread out.
I don’t suggest drilling the holes every 4” like I did. It was really over-kill. Ask yourself how often you really plan on adjusting your rack. You could probably get away with drilling a single set of holes for each shelf and never miss the other holes. I had a shelf system in my other shop that I NEVER adjusted in the 8 years that I used it.
Let me know if y’all need any other specs.
