    The wood shed!

    After my labor day wood find I really needed additional wood storage. There is a smaller room connected to my work shop that was used for general storage of good stuff (actually mostly forgotten junk ) So cleared the room, took the lead of Larry's wood storage, shrunk to WAY down from his to meet my application and came up with the following. 1st pic is the junk room, then how it is now. I'm really happy on how It came together from flat storage to sheet storage.

    Thanks for looking, Tom.

    one suggestion!

    tom looks like it came out pretty good there,, but on your sheet storge i would make a change,, the uprights on the floor wonbt be there long,, your gonna trip over them and the way you have them anchored if the flat sheets did decide to slid down the strength isnt as good as it could be.. here is what i would do first of all you want your sheets as perpendicular as you can have them and stil stand alone ,, today sheet goods are alredy heading towards warp when we get it,, dont want to give it more chance to do so before we get to the project we going to use them for.. take and allow say 16" max floor space and lay 2x4 on top of your runners and then anchor it to the runners it will only be 3" total hiegt yet hold much more in shera strength.. and you wont have to pick up your sheets so high and the wont have to navigate around the short posts you now have.. other than that you dun good bud..

    Tom, that's some organized shed there. I'm totally jealous. I see a lot of Shaker style projects just waiting to have life breathed into them

    Tom, That is way too cluttered, you need to send some of that stock my way and I'll "store" it for ya.

    Nice job, looks good!

    Don't know what I'm more envious about...the wood itself, or the fact that you have that room to store it. Nice job.
