Topic tags/keywords: storage above doors creative

I’m always amazed by the different and creative methods of storing things within workshops. Often though some places are overlooked as good storage areas.

So what creative areas and methods do you find yourself using in order to store more stuff within your shop? ;)

Here’s a portion of my lumber storage above my large door.

I use it for pieces of between 4 feet 5 feet.


.
And here is where I store pieces longer that 10 feet, which is the height of my ceiling.
There you can see some Santos Mahogany. One piece over 18 inches wide.

Well I don’t store above the door, because the door is 14’ high but I do use the walls.

Air hoses, extension cords. Bandsaw blades, rope.

Jeez Karson, how do you get stuff down from so high?

It is not above a door, but I do connect stuff to the ceiling. My drafting board is hinged to the ceiling and swings down for use. I also store band saw blades, uncoiled, flat against the ceiling with 4 “L” shaped brackets positioned at 0,90,180, and 270 degrees around the perimeter of the blades.
