Yesterday, I posted a pic of my wood rack in bare form. Today, my brother and I put every piece of lumber I have (minus my rolling wood cart that is stocked full). There is an absolute massive amount of wood on this thing. Heavy, dense exotics and hardwoods (I left one shelf for 2×6’s and 2×4’s). All shelf extensions are perfectly level. It’s pretty cool…! Dimensions of this thing:

Height – 8’3” (lumber can go up to 10 feet)
Length – 9’6” (can fit any length)
Shelf extensions – 18” (23.5” overall) with 12” spacers
Base – 24” (29.5” overall) and 16” high with spacing below to handle shorts (around 24” in length).

This is not attached to the wall and is very sturdy and It’s very beefy…lol

I think Yogesh is lost, his investigation skills should have lead him to another thread where someone gave a crap.

But I do like the wood rack, that is a lot of weight up top for it not to be secured. How many guys does it take to get those big slabs up to 8’?

I must admit, this is a great rack. I really like the combo shelves for block stock.

My only problem with all these racks is I always want the piece on the bottom!
So if I wanted that thin plank on the top shelf, on the bottom, I have to move about 200-250 lbs of wood to get at it, and by then I say the heck with the project, or go out and buy another plank.

So I started racking my planks vertically years ago. Was a bit worried about warping, but that has never happened and I always can get to the plank I want. Basically it is your shelf unit with outboard verticals, and plywood floors on the shelves.
