Can anyone help me out on some ideas I could use on making a rolling lumber cart. There are so many different ones, that I want to use it to also store some old windows until I get to making the cold cases for my raised planting boxes. I also need to get my stored wood off the ground and organized so I can see what I got. Right now, I really don't know what I really have.
If you go to the "search field", (located in the upper RH corner of this page),
type in "lumber storage",
several pages of info and photos appears.
The curse of never throwing a board away with the idea that it might come in handy :) I know it well! A search here will help and you may want to play with different words. Lumber cart may generate something different from lumber storage for example. Another great place for inspiration is pinterest. you can use the search feature there as well.
Thanks, Ken and Rita.
Sometimes it is good to have friends point you in the right direction. I did find one but, I did see the handyman Mag lumber storage rack which I think might have what I need in design and I think with a little fine tuning here and there and the other ideas. I'll probably have a good looking functioning lumber storage rack. If anybody has any other ideas please let me know; Thanks.
You don't have to get it fancy--- keep it simple.
Make it using the basic tools you have available.
You can store small cutoff pieces in 5 gal plastic buckets.
Long thin pieces can be stored in plastic pipe, down spouts, or the like, and fastened together so they stay upright.
