Where does all the crap come from?!

When you have a small work space, you have to get creative. That means keeping a lot of lumber outside. Today I pulled the lumber racks down and spaced them away from the wall the width of a 2x4 ( 3 1/2" ). This allows me to slide sheets of plywood in behind the other stuff. 'Cause nothing takes up a small work shop like a sheet of plywood.

Because I consolidated 2 piles of junk into one, my racks were going to have a lot of wasted space. Luckily, as I was cleaning I found 2 pieces of rebar on the ground. I just drilled a hole in each upright and hammered them in. Used up the wasted space, it was a quick fix, and they're strong.

Anyway, just a little quick and dirty job but it always feels good to get 'er done!

Brian T. and Kerrys like this.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I assume that your outside storage is totally covered where blowing rain cannot get on the wood, especially the plywood.

Aside from protecting the wood from rain isn't your location fairly humid ? If you store it outside it may pick up moisture then when you bring it into your shop it may twist and warp as it dries again. I would also worry that the plywood could delaminate.

All the 'good' wood is inside. I've had some of this stuff out here for over a year. But a lot of it gets used fairly quick. As a boat builder I'm used to having wood stay outside and I usually build outside. I use a fair amount of cedar as well and it holds up well outside.

They are about even with the racks below. However I am probably going to run a 1x3 across and join them. It will act as a lip to help keep the bean poles from falling off and fix the protruding ends.
