My shop is a post frame building that I finished off inside with framing, insulation, and drywall. I was a little scared to put a whole lot of weight on the outside wall because of the way it was built. So, I decided to go with a vertical lumber rack. I have a very good hardwood dealer not far away, so I do not need to store really large quantities of wood. The ceiling on this side is also vaulted, so I have lots of vertical space available.
I screwed 2×4x72’s across the wall with 3/4” dowels mounted every 10” on them. I also built a platform base so that the wood would not be resting on the concrete floor. The far left space can hold up to a 12’ board. I still need to get some kind of chain or string to run across the dowels to keep anything from falling sideways on me.
I also need to build a shorts bin for all the 1-2’ pieces on the right side of the rack.
