I have been dormant in my woodworking for about 10 years. One of the projects I had in mind when the break began was to get my stack of lumber up off the floor of the shop and on a rack. This is based upon a plan I remember from one of the woodworking magazines – I could not find the actual issue but credits go to whoever did the original design.
This all scraps I had laying around including part of the shipping crate from a jointer/planner. The wall it is attached to is made from 2×6 studs on 12 inch centers. I put 6 lag bolts into each of the vertical standards, some 30 in all. The “arms” are raised at a five degree angle.
Not only is the wood up off the floor, I now have some more floor space, always a commodity in short supply no matter how big the shop. It is also very easy for me to access and pull out lumber for projects.
This is a simple project I know, but for me it represents entering into a rebirth of woodworking.
