Much needed Lumber Rack

First project in my new shop, needed to get the lumber off the floor so I decided on a Lumber rack first.
All made from 2×4 & 1×4 material trimmed to 3” wide and gluded and screwed together. All the pieces were cut on a 2 deg. angle to keep boards from sliding and rack from sagging. Anchored to wall with (3) 6” lag bolts in each member, seems to be very solid. Shop is 20 ft. long so I tried to get as much space as I could to store all the boards I have, stiil not enough room, maybe I need to make more projects or cull some scraps.
Last picture shows the rack as loaded as I could get it for now.

Thanks for looking
Carl

Mighty nice. Just a quick question, what spacing did you use, vertical and horizontal? They look well spaced. Mine are 1/2” plywood supports, stacked to the hilt. I’ve got way to much wood for the amount of projects I’ve been producing lately. I plan to cover the wall studs with 1/2” plywood or T-111, and make a cutout for an AC unit, so the old rack must go, and I’m gonna borrow your idea and build permanent using big beefy 2×4s, and sleep better at night.

davidroberts,
I spaced the verts 12” top to top, the very top rack is 15” deep all the rest are 12”.
The horiz spacing is on 32” centers with the wall studs,
I don’t think I can over load it the way it is built, but still not enough room—never is!!
thanks and good luck with your build!
