Look up, look waaaay up.
After buying some rough boards of maple and birch I was faced with the problem of how to store them. Floor space is at a premium in the garage, so the only way to go was up.
I copied the plans from the Wood Whisperer in “Racking my Brains” It was pretty straightforward, only pia was climbing up and down the ladder. An extra pair of hands would have been useful.
The brackets are two pieces of plywood glued and screwed onto a piece of 2×4. The whole thing acts as a mortise with the 2×4 attached to the wall.
I used 5” lag screws to make sure it was sturdy and able to hold the weight of the hardwood.
Of course getting the boards down will also be a pia, but that’s the way it goes.
