I finally built the lumber rack I have been planning for a long time. It is pretty much based on the popular Wood Whisperer design, with adjusted dimensions to fit my needs.
It is made from construction lumber and scrap 3/4” plywood (one support uses 1/2” baltic birch plywood instead). I laminated them solidly with lots of glue – the screws are mainly there to hold things in alignment during glue up. After assembly I took them to the router table and rounded over all the plywood edges.
Each one is held to the wall with 4 high-grade construction screws. They turned out plenty strong – I can easily hang from a single one.
Also in the pictures you can see my inspiration for the project – some awesome lumber I scored for a great price. I’m definitely excited to start making some projects with it!
