What are your TIPS re: storing wood?

Toxins Out, Nature In - body/mind/spirit

I haven’t been in this building very long, had to move a lot of stuff in before I was ready . Some things are just there waiting for there on place.

This unit was originally a 2 sided roll about all purpose storage. I dismantled it and place the 2 sides end to end for a 5’x 16′ × 12″ rack.

I just finished this unit for storing short pieces of hardwood, turning blocks & other finds. It measures 8’ L x 2’D x 8’ 4" H

This unit is 4’D x 15’ L x 9’ H
The first 2 stalls are designed to hold 4×8 sheet goods, the next 2 will hold 1/2 sheets underneath & smaller on top, the next will hold 8’ planks with short pieces up & in front.
The last section houses the compressor & scaffold with 4’ material above.
On top there is room for up to 16’ lumber.
Thanks to all who contribute, I have learned a lot and I am implementing the new ideas in my ongoing shop creation of hopefully my last shop.
Don’t want to ever move all of this again !! LOL


Very nicely organized Jay. I can only hope one day.


Thanks Jack for the kind words !!

There are a few pieces in there that need to go to make room for more 4×8 MDF, plywood , etc


Good organization Jay.

You got a lot of wood.
