Until recently I had always bought wood as I needed it. My mother in law expressed an interest in a cedar quilt chest so I went on a cedar hunting adventure and wound up with a guy giving me a sizeable pile of cedar, poplar and some oak. Most of it is still on a trailer backed under my father in laws shed but I brought a bunch of the cedar home and quickly found I had no where to store it. I found the plan for this wall hanging lumber rack on Youtube and me and my son set out to build it today. Pretty simple, starts with 1 1/2” by 1 1/2” strips toggle bolted to wall. Cut the arms 16 inches long and glued/screwed 1/2” plywood to each side with a 1 7/16th’s inch gap at the back which forms sort of a motise for the verticle strips to fit in. Was very proud of my 17 year old son, he jumped right in and hammer drilled those holes like a champ. The rack seems to work as advertised and it took all that wood and seems ready for more.
