    1. If you have more than 2 supports under each board, making sure they all line up close to perfect, to prevent putting warp/bend in the wood

    2. I think I might make the horizontal supports slope a bit back toward the wall, so that if they bend slightly under load, there won't be a tendency for the boards to slide off and bonk you in the head while you're using your table saw.

    I think OP said he was using 3 up-rites , 3 should be ok for preventing warp/bending, as long as they are not at the ends and are in 4' from ends. You could put a pin system at ends like they do at the big DIY stores, to stop boards from falling

    I'm planning on bolting the steel right through the block.


    You are planing on using steel plates on other side of wall? Using 1/2 or larger galvanized threaded rod?

    You could weld 2 X 2 across the front to stop deflection side to side?

    Perfect, that's just what I was looking for. The ideal way would be without the diagonals, so that's good to know. Should I be attaching the up rights to the floor joists above as well ? Once again thanks for all the help and info.

    type of wood would be 2x4 - 2x10 that short of thing, wouldn't be anything flimsy.
    the wood shop will be in a basment type area. So yes i can secure it to the floor joists above if need be. I would not be able to secure to the bottom concrete floor due to infloor heating.

    Thanks for the fast reply bob. Do you see anything in the design that you would
    change/improve on?

    2x2x3/16 for the racks and 2x3 or 2x4 for the uprights. You can put the long side out and weld tabs to go thru the wall with the bolts...Bob

    started a topic What type of material should i use?

    What type of material should i use?

    Putting together my new wood shop, and i need to build a wood rack. I'm thinking of bolting it to a inside block wall. So i can utilize the space under it to store my tools (planer, table saw) when I am not using them. I've searched for a while now looking for steel strenghts and haven't had much luck.

    I'm estimating that each level will have around 200 lbs of wood on it, I have 3 bars
    across in the picture, but can add 4 or 5. The grey is the block wall and the red is the
    steel, I'm planning on bolting the steel right through the block. Is this plan plausable? and what kind/size steel should i be using?

    Edit: sorry for the lousy diagram, my microsoft paint skills are not the greatest. the overall length to store the wood will be 16'
