Overhead Lumber Rack / Support à bois au plafond

2013/11/25

Pour ranger le bois des palettes que j’ai ramassées l’été dernier, j’ai décidé qu’un espace de rangement au plafond serait approprié dans mon atelier déjà tassé.

Je visse quatre colombages de 2″X4″ de 20″ aux solives du plafond pour former un rectangle.

To store the wood from the pallets I gathered last Summer, I decided that a place to store them overhead would be appropriate in my crowded shop.

I screw four 20″ long 2″X4″ studs to the ceiling joists to form a rectangle.

J’ai serré ces supports en T aux montants pour supporter les traverses pendant que je les visse aux montants.

I clamped those T-shape supports to the uprights to support the rails while I screw them to the uprights.

Le support terminé fait 44″ par 36″.

Il est solide car j’y ai facilement pendu un cerveau de 160 lb !

The completed rack is 44″ by 36″.

It is strong because I easily hung  a 160 lb brain from it !

Pour maximiser l’espace, j’ai marqué, percé et vissé des planches sous les traverses.

To maximize the space, I marked, drilled and screwed boards under the rails.

Ce nouvel espace me permet de ranger les planches courtes.

This new space allows for storing smaller boards.
