In this video series Rob designs and builds a free-standing lumber rack for his new workshop. Rob custom designs this rack using “A-frame” type construction with 2 x 8 lumber, screwed and glued joinery, and knock-down bolts to make the whole assembly able to be taken apart. The rack is designed to hold over 200 board feet of lumber. Watch as Rob takes you through the design phase using his scaled-down mock-up technique, then using the scale model builds the lumber rack. This lumber rack is easily scalable so you can match the dimensions to your needs.
