I am looking for a good small size sheet good rack on wheels for a small workshop. I can resize if I can find the right looking one.
Here in Eugene, OR it's fairly wet & HD, Lowes, & a store called Jerry's are the "big" guys. All 3 store both hard & soft wood (instore) vertically, HD has units of 2x? lumber inside plus P-T boards of standard sizes all inside & flat, Jerry's has a lumber yard also where utility & better are stored flat & in both cases there is a lot of warpage with the only exception being KD boards. They are worth the few cents extra in my book. It's a small book though. All 3 stores keep sheet goods inside & flat. I think it's more the quality of wood the buyers select than anything else. We also have a small guy callled Mikes Bargin Center who has all of his boards & sheet goods inside once they are broken into & he has a lot of warpage in his soft wood more so than the hard wood. So the "Great Debate" changes by locale & season it would seem. signing out now, Larry D.
Ken, I saw the pix above and assumed we were only talking sheet goods.
All my other 1x and 2x boards I do store flat, except for cutoffs.

How ''long'' are the boards, that you store vertically?
---3-4ft long boards or 8-12ft boards.
