George’s Solid Wood Storage

Duration: 2:04

George Vondriska explains how he set up the solid wood storage area in his storage building. Using some heavy duty, inexpensive shelf brackets from a home center, he found an effective way to store solid woods. It was easy to set up and helps keep the wood organized. Including a miter saw in this area creates a great work flow to get wood cut to size before bringing it into the shop.

    It looks like you have the Bosch miter saw and stand. were you able to put the FastCap extension arms right on the gravity Bosch stand? You must feel the expense of the FastCaps best fence is worth it? I have not been a bee to justify $450 for the rail system… Can you help explain why it is so expensive?

      Yep, I’ve got the Best Fence on my Gravity Stand. It’s been quite a while since I put it on, but I don’t remember having to do anything unusual to mount it. It has worked well for me as a reliable fence/stop system for a portable miter saw stand.

      Hi Dan. The building has conventional 2×4 stud walls, so the brackets are simply screwed to the studs.
      Thanks

    My storage shed has metal structural members instead of wood 2x4s. I have a bunch of these brackets already, how would I fasten the standards to the metal framing?

      Hello and thanks for your question. Unfortunately we don’t have any information available about handing shelving brackets on metal framing. A lumber rack will put some stress on the frame, so you will want to do some homework to ensure that your method of attaching is appropriate for metal framing.

    Hi there. I noticed that George mentioned that the brackets and wall standards are “Heavy Duty”, and upon researching the link provided in the comments, I found that the KNAPE & VOGT system comes with a heavy duty 1″ standard, and a 5/8″ regular size standard. I am wondering if George’s system uses the Heavy Duty 1″ standards or the regular 5/8″ ones, and his reference to Heavy Duty, is simply that the regular ones are good quality and strong.
