In my small shop, floor space is at a premium so I built this wall system. Storage brackets start at 56” off the ground so that I can store sheet goods below the dimensional lumber. Electrical outlets were installed to be above the sheet goods and below the brackets. The system is lighter than many I’ve seen on LJ but I don’t keep a lot of wood, so I think this will work out.
The brackets are movable by pulling the dowels and repositioning the bracket and re-doweling.
All of the material used in the construction of this project except fasteners was recycled. The uprights and main supports in the brackets were red cedar ballisters from a deck I tore down about 10 years ago. All of the triangular bracing for each bracket came from dumpster diving at construction sites (running low on this). The pine shelf is a couple of selves I joined with pocket screws, they came out of an old bookcase.
The dowels came from an old wine rack that I had from the 70’s.
Incidentally, the pink hue is from my lights, I didn’t paint anything pink!
