    Vertical Lumber Storage Addition

    Glenn dropped by and we took to the shop. For Christmas I received a coupon good for one "Lumber Rack Re-Org". I am cashing in part of that . Glenn says this one incorporates all the fixes for the mistakes he made on his first two that reside in his shop so, I got that going for me. I don't stock a lot of lumber so the width is 32". It is positioned in the shop to take advantage of an open overhead area that leads up to a high-point of the roof line. This shot shows scale and height of the back-rest / divider.

    The base is not as deep as Glenn's; I set the depth at about 9" since that will fit most of my stock.

    I set my indentured servant to loading the beast up. Now the south wall holds a lot more stuff and even has some open space on it .

    After lunch we'll go after the horizontal rack.

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

    Looks quite good there! The wood will be quite happy to be off of the floor and securely stowed and I'll bet you'll be happy with how easy it is to get at it now .
