Default Small board storage rack

I don't know if this goes under 'Shop Safety' but it's a lot safer walking around now that I have room to turn around.

I was being overrun with scraps and cutoffs so it was time to make a storage rack or box. Since I don't use the lathe and that's where a lot of the boards were stored that's where I decided to place the storage rack (want to buy a 10' long lathe?). This is mostly a compilation of handheld shots with my iPhone so not top quality but it gets the point across.

Good project Dave. One I keep pondering over but I don't have as many scraps as you. Although it made your shop safer for you I think it might fit better in DIY and Renovation so I moved it there.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Nice project Dave. You have inspired me to do something with the same problem in my 13X13 shop.

The heart is a very neat and delicate piece of art. You need a bigger shop.

Thanks, Steve! Our two-car garage is 21x21 but the usable space for shop purposes is about 18x18 so it isn't much bigger than yours. Our real estate agent (and good friend, nickname 'Hammer', hence the scrollwork carving in Padauk you saw in the video) sent us a link yesterday for a house that is 400 sq. ft. smaller than ours but has a 30x36 dedicated shop. Now there's a real estate agent who understands priorities!

Now there is a REAL real estate agent. Half my problem is the 3 stacks of cherry wood in there (one of which is my avatar before it moved inside). The fourth stack is outside under tarps and snow.

Good project, David. Not only eliminated clutter but also lowered frustration. Good deal.

Nice idea to put the dividers in so you can categorize by type and size. I've always wondered how the people in woodworking videos have such nice clean, uncluttered shops. I just realized that in the videos, you only see them from the waist up. Their floors are probably just as cluttered as mine!

David that would be great for your wife, there is less house for her to clean. And of course the added space in the shop would just be an added bonus.
