I know I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been busy with work and wedding planning. This week-end coming is the big day. So, while trying to clean up the house for the pa-rentals to come see for the first time, I decided to take a jab at cleaning up my stock wood.
For preperation, I cleaned up and cut the wood to size. I gotta say though, there is something rewarding about cutting wood by hand … compared with a table saw. Table saw is great to make quick work, but I do like myself some good old fashion manual labor once in a while.
I really just came up with the design on the spot. The only 2 things I need it to do is hold my sticks & hold my sheets … pretty basic. Except that if I need this to be really close to the wall (space constraint) … then I need it to be cantilevered from the bottom.
This helps me place all my sheets in the back, while keeping easy acess to 2″x4″s and the like.
So I made sure that the base was super strong and anchored tight to the wall.
Using 5-inch & 6-inch structural screws … these things are serious fasteners!
Once anchored to the wall, I removed the supports and made sure it was sturdy. Keeping it off the floor makes for easy cleaning.
I added all my various sheets of material in the back.
And then built the last 3 shelves …
You have yourself a perfectly usable shelf to store all your project wood. Even managed to hang my snowboard up top!
