Vertical Lumber Organizer


Vertical Lumber Organizer
Before I installed this vertical storage rack, my lumber was hard to manage and a housekeeping nightmare. I could never find the piece I wanted, and removing a board from the back of the stack was sure to cause trouble. Finally, after a major board slide, I decided to take action. I drilled holes and installed 1-in.-dia. dowels in a 2×4 that I anchored to the wall. Mounting it diagonally allows me to separate my boards by length. Eye screws and chains help to secure them. A raised exterior-grade plywood shelf keeps the boards off the floor, so they don't absorb moisture from the concrete.
