This is a variation of the Wood Whisperer’s plans. My rack has one less row of supports, 16 total, and no sheet goods storage space. I hung my 200 pound body off of each and bounced up and down, then had my 280 pound older brother do the same… I think the wall studs would snap before the rack supports! Also, this is literally the first project I’ve ever done that I can honestly say was easier than expected haha. I have the link to the full plans if anybody wants it. Comments and critiques welcome… thanks for looking!

Nice job!

Now that the accolades are over….
Fill that rack with project wood, then procede to empty it.
Repeat, Repeat, Repeat!!!

I used a similar design. It is a very sturdy rack, and you will be happy with it I am sure.

Great job.

Nice job!
I built this for my new shop but with the sheet goods storage. I am quite satisfied with it and would recommend the plan for those who have the roo.
