I believe the name of the movie was called "The area that keeps you safe so you won't die"....in 3D!!!". I think it starred Jean Claude Van Damme as "Cousin Billy", Christopher Walken as "Cooter" and Megan Fox as "Hot Girl #2".

More drywall yesterday in the workshop, more drywall today. Sprinkling a little work in between (work work that is). Will post a picture or two of the workshop later today. Question though. Anyone have a system for storing lumber? I have some brackets I built, but looking for something a little more professional than I've done. Haven't had a chance to do any research. May be looking for something like this:

I have a DIY rack. One thing, depending on what things you store you might need more than two supports as suggested by the pictures, I have 4, Otherwise storing long bendable stuff is a problem.

Big -

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking of buying two pairs and varying the second pairs distance between the first pair to accommodate different lengths.

I cut 1x2's to fit between the joists in the basement. Place/space as many as it takes to hold the wood in place.

I like that shelving solution, pretty slick. I do think that having four of the "arms" is a much better idea for varying lengths and rigidity of materials.

If I had the room to use something like that I sure would.

I actually used some pressure treated lumber that the previous owner left and made brackets and screwed them into studs in the the open wall. Since I'm finishing out the room, I was thinking of something a little more elegant than what I did.

I like that it's adjustable. That'll come in handy once in a while, but when you need it, you got it.

Yes, I'm actually doing things. Hung most of the drywall (anything with mud) over the last two days. In the last (but dark) picture, you can see a very messy bench - go that in previously. I need to get that done first since it took up a large area. The closet where the ladders are I'm not going to mud yet, I'm having a patio put in and they'll need to run some electric into the house for lighting. Expect that's where that will go. In the next to last picture you can see in the corner some wood - that's the wall I have the wood brackets I made on. Have to remember to capture one of those shots.

Also, I ran out of drywall screws so I couldn't quite finish out everything AND I couldn't find my metal shears to cut the outside corner on the drywall. Tired and done for the day.

Yeah, drywall, tapping AND mudding. That's what I'm talking about! The more you get done, the closer you get to the theater construction. Consider this the "warm up" before the "main event".

I should have said the ceiling joists.

speaking on the topic of wood storage. Is it best to store wood inside or can it be stored outside in a shed too? Just curious what is best for it and if it actually matters.

I'm not expert, but I think it's important to keep the wood in the same climate (humidity) that the wood will eventually be used. I've heard for hardwood floors that typically they want the wood to be installed to sit a few days to adjust to those conditions accordingly. I've had some alder from the previous bar build out that I have stored and it seems just fine, even after years in the basement. Could be the species of wood that makes a difference too.

As far as outside vs inside, dunno, probably based on conditions on the outside and how it's stored. I know I picked up some PT wood from Big Orange and a few weeks again and stored it in my basement on my brackets and in about two weeks it was all warped. It seem relatively damp when I bought it (and it was heavy because of that) and I probably should not have.

Others chime in.

I'm calling Shenanigans on the photo of that bracket withe pipes on top! What's stopping them from rolling off? I gaRUN-TEE that they would roll right off that bracket. There needs to be some sort of lip on there to keep them on.

LOL. I think they use the 3M spray adhesive to keep it together.

Have any of you guys since drywall that's 5 feet wide? I ask because the backside of the closet I drywalled had only one seam, whereas I have two - since the wall is just under 9 feet high.

Bud
post #198 of 762
I have a vague memory of 54 inch drywall being mentioned at the local drywall supplier (Global Building Supply) . It may also be unique to certain Manufacturers. With the popularity of 9 ft ceilings it would save a lot of time.

I almost called some places on the weekend, but really only need a few sheets, so I didn't both. I did look at HD, but they don't carry it.

You know you've been away for too long when you start thinking about remodeling you HT the same time as a bunch of fellow AVS members are doing the same!!!

Bud, it's been awhile since I've checked in, but I'm glad I did. I've been hooked on home brewing now it's home theater time!

I have a roll-around rack on which I store plywood, MDF and other sheet goods. It is always right on the ragged edge of being overloaded.

For solid wood, I have a couple of different storage areas. Most of it is stored high on the wall on standard Rubbermaid-type shelving from one of the big box stores. Stuff like this:



I have three 10' long x 21"-ish deep rubber-coated wire shelves, with each shelf supported by four brackets (32" OC). The shelves occupy the top 3' of that wall of the shop. This is where I keep the stuff that I'm not going to use right away -- mostly stock left over from prior projects and individual boards I found by accident and thought were too cool to pass up. Each shelf bracket might be carrying a 50-lb load, with each shelf standard carrying 150-lbs, all well within the capacity claimed by the manufacturer. I've had the shelves up there for more than five years with nary a problem. The wire shelving makes it very easy and convenient to store pieces that are too short to span the distance between the shelf supports.

When I add more long-term storage (which I eventually will), I will probably use garage ceiling storage shelves like this:



For wood that is destined for use on whatever project I'm currently working on, I have played with different storage solutions over the years. Right now, I store this vertically against a wall. Vertical storage makes it very easy to view all of the boards and pick out individual boards. As long as it is stacked thoughtfully and doesn't stay there too long, I have found that the boards stay about as straight as they were when I brought them home. Horizontal storage on shelves would be better for the wood but I just can't spare the wall space at a height that would allow easy access to the wood.

54" sheets of drywall are available, but typically not at the box stores.

Dwight.

Thanks for the input. I've been wanting a garage storage thing for some time. I have the heavy closet maid stuff in the garage, the grey stuff. It's not cheap, but is rated for like 600 lbs or something ridiculous. I guess I could go that route. Never dawned on me. I don't expect to store a lot of plywood, i buy only what i need - too much of a pain to lug down to the basement. Thanks.

Yeah, as I suspected. Wasn't worth the trip out of the way to get two or three sheets. Thanks.
