Storing Lumber


Storing Lumber

This rack is easily made from galvanized iron pipe and threaded floor flanges. For light loads use 10-in. lengths of 1/2-in. pipe and 2x4s. For heavier loads go to 3/4-in. pipe and 4x4s. Be sure to anchor the flanges securely to the wall using bolts, washers, and nuts—not just wood screws. If you plan to store finished material on the racks, slip plastic tubing over the pipe to protect the surfaces.
