OT - Garage Organization.....scrap wood storage??

Wait...."garage organization"...oxymoron?

Anyway, interested in seeing how y'all store your scrap wood pieces. I don't really like the idea of a "box". And obviously shelves for the long pieces.....

Thanks!

Just remember that when you store wood it's an invitation for termites. Look it over once in a while. I've seen those little buggers destroy stored wood, while leaving the structure alone.

I use boxes, buckets, space between wall studs, shelves. I've always wanted a dedicated wood working shop. Sawdust does make a pretty good garage floor cleaner, smells good too! It sucks when there's a mechanic job and a wood project going on at the same time though.

Re: OT - Garage Organization.....scrap wood storag

I have 3 methods....
For the long stuff, I have two sets of H shaped brackets mounted on the wall that I put the long stock into...typically moulding and other stuff like that go into the upper rack, and the larger sawn lumber in the lower rach....and this is sitting above my radial arm saw....

Next I have a short shelf above my miter saw...this is where I keep all the pieces that are 18" or shorter....because it's there, organized by wood and size, I'm more likely to check there for something that will work before I go chop on a longer piece of wood....

Then for small pieces of plywood, and sawn board that is too short for my horizontal rack and too long for the self, I have a lean-to that is raised off the floor....

I typically save all the real small pieces and use them as kendling in the fire place....

But in about another 3 weeks the garage will be torn down so I can build a bigger one....that does not leak....

Re: OT - Garage Organization.....scrap wood storag

I try to keep all of my wood scrap leaning in one corner of the garage. It just leans agenst the wall. I keep all my metal scrap in a different corner. It is not a great system, but it keeps everything in the same place, and I know where to find it if I am looking.

Re: OT - Garage Organization.....scrap wood storag

The smaller pieces go into a large plastic garbage can, the medium ones get propped up against the opposite end to the bay door and the large ones lean against the cooler until hunting season. Then they are moved to where the meduim sized pieces are. To hold larger pieces against the walls tie straps (or bungie cords) are held to the wall 2x4's by nails. (largest facing interior of garage) Often 4 X 8 sheets of OSB are used for table tops for cutting meat.
