Ah, yes. SWMBO.

A 10'x10'x18' building shop in the back yard eliminates lots of 'noise'.

I am more than happy with how they turned out for the time and money spent on the job and I am sure you will be happy with it if you decide on making a set or two for yourself.

BTW - Just to give you some scale, thats a 4 meter on top.

Thanks for looking.

Dear Bill,

These racks look great! Now I just need to find some wall space!

Thanks, Bruce

Vertical Space

The Most overlooked storage space in the average home is the vertical/wall space. Walls are not just for hanging pictures anymore. Bill's rack system is a great starting point.

I'm currently designing a system that will have the dowels angled up a few degrees so I can store Monokote rolls on. I'm also working on plans for a flight box that won't be so durn heavy as the ones currently on the market. One solution is to replace the 1 gal. fuel jug with a half gallon jug. I'll post photos when I get one set-up. Also. I'll start a new thread so as not to change the direction of this thread that Bill has started. Thanks again, Bill.

Another problem I'm stuck with is to find a way to put all my gear in my pick up so things don't slide around and get busted. I have one of those very slick bed liners. Carpet might be one solution.

So, lets keep all the good ideas coming guys.
