So I needed to create a quick solution for storing my lumber. I’ve been storing it vertically… which I actually like. But I have a lot of wood. And it seems like it kept wanting to migrate into the middle of the floor.
This pic was after some cleaning. While cleaning the pile I found there is water coming in around the edge. So I decided it was time to change things around.
So… if you know me at all… You know I started out with pallet wood. Lots of pallet wood. I also reclaim a lot of lumber from places around town including a business that makes barges.
SO….. LOL… I started by… making a pallet. Sorry… I couldn’t help it. I made this and the first thing that popped in my mind was that these boards were probably waiting to be something and they ended up right back as a pallet… I had a good laugh. :)
Then I made… another pallet… and another pallet. LOL
You’ll have to forgive the poor pictures. I used my phone and I had safety glasses so I guess I didn’t notice that they were blurry.
The first pic is the base. I then attached the other two to the sides.
After that I added pieces to the ends.
When I started I had something in mind. But it became something else. The sizes were decided by me grabbing three 2×4’s from the pile that were about the same size. The three that I actually grabbed… ended up being all the same size.. 20”. So that became the depth. Grabbed another one… that became the height, 24”. Then I just decided to make it 36” long. I did enjoy the build and not having to have things a certain way.
And now I have a much nicer place to store my wood. And you can never have too much wood :)
Here’s my new storage… all put back together. I also added a couple trash cans and a bucket for storage as well. Once I get these moved I can actually open the garage door again. :)
