This is a lumber rack I built to help organize my shop a little bit. All the material was found on the side of the road except the 2×4’s. The support columns are just 2 layers thick of 2×4’s with one of them notched for the shelves. It has 8 bins for different wood scraps, because let’s face it, scraps are more useful than most of us like to admit. I just put blue tape to label the bins with the woods I have right now. I am sure I’ll run out of room in the bins sooner or later, but for now it works. You can see from the picture taken looking at the at the end of the rack, there is also a storage spot for sheet goods.
This rack really helped me clean the shop up and reduced my risk of breaking a leg by about 200%. You can also see from the picture that I left the words “free wood” showing on the salvaged plywood. That’s to remind myself that there is usually a cheaper way to do everything and that with a little effort almost anyone can make this expensive hobby affordable.
Hope you like it.
