Greetings Julie:.... Stellar job on the wood rack….did you build this yourself? You are quite the lady woodworker….!! I really like how you made a few shorter standards to use for the short cut-offs…. you just don’t have enough wood…. lol. Wood should be stacked from the bottom to top… that way you won’t run short when in the middle of a project…... Again, that’s a nice rack, as we all say…........... later.

Hi Julie,
Very nice. I’m jealous I wish I had the space.

I have been working on a similar design over the past 2 weekends. I’ll post pics next week. You went a little beefier than I did. I did 2×2’s. Hope it’s enough. I’m sure that you will be happy with yours. Thanks for posting.

I have a triton rack, but with six 100 lb shelves and only 2 supports, it doesn’t spread the weight out too well. I like that this version can transfer some of the weight downward to the concrete and the walls only need to help hold the unit upright (as opposed to suspend the weight in the air).

I’m redoing my garage anyway, so I’m definitely building one of these. Are these your own plans or did you get them from a magazine? I might be bothering you with a few more questions, but your blog was really quite clear. Thanks so much for posting!!

This type of rack I made is very similar to some in books and magazines that I had read. I pretty much just changed the brackets to make it simpler for me to cut out. You can see more about that in my blog comments.
