    At last! (Wood storage)

    Well, after needing one for years, I finally got inspired to make a dedicated storage rack for all the odds and ends of wood that seem to mysteriously multiply in the shop. I had seen a number of systems that others have used, but none seemed to fit the bill. I decided that since I have the space, I'd take full advantage of the high ceilings and build up. Nothing fancy about the constructionů 3/4 birch ply with lots of ]screws.

    Got it loaded up today, and oh, what a difference it makes! Best thing is, it only takes 6 sq ft of floor space.

    Space saving, organization and ease of access all in one. Way to go Dave.

    Nice! That gives me an idea for the PP. Thanks.

    Very nice job. Being organized like this makes planning and working on your projects that much easier.

    Congrats on a neat looking system.

    I could be that neat with my wood if I threw 3/4ths of it away or if I had 3x the size shop or if I could get organized.

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
