Here’s my new wood and materials rack; it’s primitive but it works well and protects my materials from wicking water from the floor. I’m going to put casters oon it so I can roll it away from the wet basement walls at night. I made it out of recycled materials from pallets and heavy duty packing crates for machinery my friend and roommate makes as a welder/fabricator.

Great idea, I am planning on redesigning mine and want something pretty basic, so except me to steal that design

Nice job. I need something like this for my smaller scraps.

I’m glad you all liked it and thank you for the comments; it is really basic but I believe it will keep my materials safe particularly once I put the casters on it when I can purchase them. I made some little brackets this afternoon that hang on the front rail for dowels. You guys who do real woodworking can make it look really nice.
You’ve all been such an inspiration to me to get my hobby shop in better order. I’m usually very organized and motivated but my liver makes me so tired all the time.
I’ve started on my Biesmeyer style fence for my toy saw already; I believe it is going to work. It can’t be much worse than the tinny one that came with it. The top of the saw is a stamped steel top and you know it isn’t even flat corner to corner.

Good way to keep the pieces and easy to find when you need them ,not hiding in a pile .

I am with kiefer, storing vertically is a lot more user friendly and accessible. I store my rough cut air dried stock vertically against the shop wall under the shed.
