I've finally gotten around to add a little more organization to my lumber. I mostly use 4/4 , 8/4 Cherry and Walnut. Sore pretty heavy wood to say the least, so I needed some very strong racks that did't require a lot of support members taking up valuable stacking space. What I decided on doing was to use 6'' lag bolts to secure an external set of studs following the existing studs. Below you can see the 2x4 notched to go around a beam that is further out then the wall studs.
Here are a few of the added studs which I will be able to mount arms to support a stack of lumber up to 21'' from the wall.
With the arms attached i've now loaded up the rack with lumber. The arms are a 18'' long iece of 2x4 with 2 pieces of 3/4'' plywood screwed to the outside, the plywood is 21.5'' long which over laps the stud that I lagged to the wall.
Here is more racking i've built over the past few days, lot's of hard work but it's paying off now. I can now see all the lumber I have and easily sort through it to find just the right boards I need for a certain job.
