Probably like most of you, I hoard wood. No, really, I do… lol. Well, it took over my largest barn and I had to have a place to put it, instead of stacked against the wall. I built this project out of the scrap lumber that I already had scavanged from other remodel or carpentry jobs, or wherever I could get the lumber really. I had a lot of sheeting and 2x stock and some others. There is also about 250 board feet of white oak in it too that I had gotten off a friend that was moving in one of those “everything must go” moments in his life.
Anyway, it’s just a simple A-frame with large plywood storage in the middle on the bottom and small sheet storage in the middle on the top. The pegs that hold the lumber are simple 2×2 stock, 2×4’s ripped down. I made a 2×4 base with sheeting and castors so that it was mobile. Well, it WAS mobile at the time, I’ve outgrown it now and it’s so heavy that it’s not mobile anymore… lol. The A-frame was a 2×4 on one side, 2×4’s between each peg cut at an angle to let the peg stay level, then a piece of 1/4 inch ply on the other side to hold the pegs in… that’s it. You’ll notice in one of the pics where it is empty that some of the pegs sag. Some of these are not pushed in all the way, and if they are still short, you can shim it. In the same pic, you can see the lumber mess behind it. All that lumber and much more fit onto it.
I have so much lumber on it now, that it is completely full from the top to the bottom, solid wood. So heavy I can’t move it. I’m going to have to come up with another storage idea… get rid of some wood (gak!)... or start mass production building… lol…
