    Show my your sheet good storage.

    I am ready to build a storage rack for sheets of plywood. I would love to see what you guys are using.
    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Mine stand vertically between a wall and my cutoff bin. The bin is 4' wide and 2' deep with angled dividers. With a decent amount of wood in it there is enough weight to lean the sheet goods forward to get to what I'm after. You can see a 'stop' hanging from the rafters to prevent the taller sheets from leaning too far (right side of the pic amongst everything else).

    P.s. I have a plywood platform raised on 2x2's to allow airflow under and around. The sheetgoods stand on this platform as opposed to the concrete.

    Wow nice racks!

    I'll see if I can find some pics of mine to post tonight.

    O.T....Rennie, How's the website coming along? I took a look but looks like your missing some files that are suppose to be under a folder called 'index_files'.

    Very slow - thanks for asking. My holidays were jamb packed with lots of 'stuff to do' and the web site took a WAY back seat. I hope to be back on it by the end of the month. This wil be a slow process!

    I don't have a picture of mine, but due to my limited floorspace and high 12' ceillings in my garage I installed several rafter storage units. Two are these Racor manual crank lifts:

    Three more ceiling storage platforms are fixed and made from left-over rear-door blocking "gates" the builders put up on the new homes in my neighborhood.

    Thumbs up Thanks for the ideas.

    Thanks to all of you for you tips and ideas. I was particularly impressed with the vertical storage from Rick Levine. I had pictured doing something similar but standing them horizontal. Vertical is obviously less floor space. I also found the wood rack on casters interesting, good idea.

    Good job guys,
    Kevin
