I wanted to share this method of storing sheet goods. As you can see in the pics, the 4×8 sheets will store on their long side. I used contact cement to attach some melamine to the long supports and stood them a little proud of the rest of the frame. There is 30# felt under the fiber board and continuous up behind the frame to prevent moisture from the cement floor. The fiber board will facilitate sliding the sheets in from the right end of the frame. The best idea, I think, was to install some T-nuts in the outer frame on both ends with a washer to guide the threaded rod into the nut. With some star handles on the threaded rod and a long piece of angle iron, I will be able to hold the sheet goods to the frame thereby preventing warping…..(I hope). I have about 9 feet of space to the right for removal of the lumber. In front of the storage frame, I will build the 18 foot miter station, using the top of the sheet goods frame for a shelf. The sheet goods storage area is just inside of the sliding unloading door, which will make transporting the sheets to their home easier. What do you think?
