Multipurpose Lumber Center
With built-in worksurfaces and a cutting center, this lumber rack is for much more than storing boards.
As you can see from the photos, this lumber center not only provides plenty of storage for boards of various lengths and widths, but it also keeps cutoffs and shorter stock well organized. There are deep, removable drawers for tools, as well. Another nice feature is the addition of a worksurface with a built-in miter saw. Rather than tote long, unwieldy boards across the shop to rough cut them at the miter saw, you can make those cuts right on the spot. The rack is made of dimensional lumber and plywood available at any home center. The supports will safely hold a good-sized supply of lumber. Most of the weight rests on the floor, and it's kept upright by screwing it to the wall studs.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
