My shop is a mess. The biggest problem is all the lumber scattered throughout the workshop. I’ve got full sheets of plywood next to small piles of hardwood. Today I did something about it and built a custom lumber rack! It has vertical storage for plywood, trim, and bins for other scraps.
I built this without a plan and as a result some of my joinery wasn’t the strongest, but once everything was tied together it was very sturdy.
I now have a table saw, router table, and X-Carve all in the middle of my shop. Up until now, I’ve just run extension cords whenever I needed power. Today I changed that!
I copied the commercially available cable ramp/cord management design, but I made it out of wood. I could have done everything on the table saw, but I wanted to experiment with the X-Carve so I made them modular.
Now I can add or subtract as many pieces as I want to change the length. It turned out great!
