Steve, either will work. However, vertical might require a higher ceiling depending on the wood you buy. I usually seem to find boards 10-14’ in length. On the plus side, vertical makes it easier to sort through your stash when you are looking for that one particular board. If stored vertically, be certain that it is very vertical so it doesn’t develop a bow over time. Therefore, care must be taken to avoid pieces tipping over.

Horizontal permits lower ceilings, but is more labor intensive to sort. You don’t have the safety concerns unless you really overload your wall and entire wall comes down!
