This is a project from my old shop that I’m just getting around to posting. Been away for a while, but got inspired by a few buddies to post my projects.

I got this idea out of the Wood America’s Best Workshops magazine. Think it was the 2008 version. It’s a very versatile rack that will hold a few board feet of wood, 4 or 5 full 4’x8’ pieces of sheet stock, all my clamps, and even a little spot for dowels.

The whole thing is just about 8’ by 8’ and I decked the backside of it with pegboard to allow for a fully configurable organization there as well. It’s very sturdy and some of the little tricks to look for on it:
  • pvc sections screwed to the underside to hold dowels
  • 3/16” luan stapled to the underside of the top storage arms to hold short cutoffs
  • customized clamp holders to fit a variety of clamps

Hope you enjoy it, if you have the space to build one of these it is really an awesome storage unit.

Hey, I have that steel support and the poles in my basement too! Nice idea for using space wisely. Like the detail regarding the cut offs. I’m just going to steal your idea. Thanks

Thanks for all the comments! Working in the lolly column was definitely a design feature I wanted to take advantage of. It’s a great use of the space and didn’t close off any walking paths as the furnace was on the other side anyway.

If anyone builds there own then shoot me a message with the pics or tag me in the post!

Roer, I believe it was the 2007 or 2009 Wood Magazine Dream Shop publication.

Have your say...
