Well get this done, despite my best efforts. The design I posted works well. I did make a couple of changes though. It is deeper than originally planed. The other is on the back inside bottom I used my pocket hole jig to make a couple of 1”x1” runners for the plywood to screw into. I also used the same thing up front to create a lip.

It is working as planned, I have freed up an entire shelf on my Rack that is on my wall.

Perfect!

I did the exact same thing above my garage door also.

Nice one. Now, let’s hope you don’t forget what’s up there. Even though it takes a bit more room, I like to be constantly reminded of my offcuts so that I remember that special piece when i need it. I have mine on a rolling cart.

This is a great way to use essentially “dead” space. And finding storage space for all those offcuts that we just can’t seem to get rid of is an issue that we all face. This not only organizes them but keeps them handy as well.

Nice job.

A very good use of a space that’s going to waste.

Usually I write the species, & the size on the ends with a magic marker.

Then when your looking for a piece, you don’t have to empty the shelf to find one.

Your so funny..not boxers or briefs but wood of course….

Dick,

95% of these shorts are Red Oak from a half pallet purchase a year and a half ago, i was planning on stacking by width and length from long on bottom to shortest on top. Since I know the depth of the box I can guess the approximate length or just stick in tape and subtract….

My short stuff is usually a dukes mixture of woods.

This looks really good. We definitely have different situations though. I’ve got a good 4+ ft of height up there. I’d like to have one side (over a 2 car garage) for large but light items and then stick an air filter up there too.

On the other side I’d like storage like this, but I’d like to have multiple shelves. You have so many great projects in your shop, I plan to steal as many of them as I can.

Hokie,

Thanks! I have been working on the build out of the shop for what feels forever. As I build out projects I find that I would do things a bit different here and there, and have to suppress the urge to run off and “fix” it!

Looking forward to seeing your future shop!

I’m in the process of refurbishing my shop, & I guess I’ll have to start blog about it.
