I have been wanting some verticle storage for longer material for awhile now. I finally decided I wanted the storage more than the freezer that was in the way of me getting it . I'm off work today so I got up and slapped this together.
This is basically a copy of the method used by the lumber yards I use. Same rack has been in place at one yard (on a massive scale of course) since the old guy running it today was a kid riding a bike to his dad's yard to help out. LOML got me a couple of pieces of the junk ply that they use to separate loads in the trucks that deliver to her work. There is an angled base that allows airflow underneath and a stand off to protect the wall a bit and act as a rail for the dividers.
It is centered in the shop to take advantage of the tallest part of the roof line. I have 40" side to side. This shot is with me standing on the platform looking up.
The plywood is ugly stuff but, well suited for this and it keeps it out of the landfill ;-) Although intended for the longer stuff currently burdening my wall rack, this will serve nicely to hold the stock I am using on my current projects for now.
It is so nice to not have all that material leaning up against stuff in every available space and generally being in the way while I try to use it up.
