My Folding Lumber Rack Turns Mobile / Mon support à bois pliant maintenant mobile

En mars dernier j’ai réalisé deux supports à bois pliants. Pour en tirer davantage dans mon petit atelier de sous-sol, j’ai décidé d’en fixer un sur une de mes deux plateformes sur roulettes.

Last March I made two folding lumber racks. To get more from them in my small basement workshop, I decided to attach one to one of my two platform rolling dollies.

J’ai utilisé quatre équerres de chaises pour unir le support à la plateforme. Facile à visser et à dévisser au besoin.

I used four chair braces to secure the rack to the platform. Easy so screw and to unscrew if needed.

Deux équerres devant, et deux au fond installées à l’arrière.

Two braces at the front, and two at the back installed from behind.

Ici je trace pour arrondir ce triangle de contreplaqué pour ajouter une tablette au dessus du support (par précaution, pensez hauteur des yeux !). Ce triangle avait d’ailleurs été prévu à cet effet.

Here I’m scribing to round over this plywood triangle to add a top shelf to the rack (by precaution, think eye level !). Back then this triangle was planned for this purpose.

Après avoir coupé les extrémités frontales à la scie à onglet, j’adoucis à ma ponceuse à disque maison, laquelle est rapide et très efficace.

After cutting the front ends at the miter saw, I’m smoothing them out at my homemade disc sander, which is very fast and very effective.

Et oui, j’adoucis également les arêtes avec une fraise quart de rond de 1/8″ (2 mm).

Yes, I also smooth out the edges with a 1/8″ (2 mm) rounding over bit.

À travers le dessus, une vis dans chaque côté devrait suffire.

Through the top, one screw into each side should be sufficient.

En plus d’y déposer temporairement les tablettes de ma future armoire en pin, il procure une place pour ma toupie-dégauchisseuse maison ainsi que quelques outils.

Besides temporarily storing my future pine armoire shelves, it provides a place for my homemade router-jointer as well as few tools.

    Great idea Serge !

    • Thank you Eric. If my shop would have been larger, think more available floor space, I would have build a longer mobile dolly to drop both of my lumber racks on it. But for now it’s another though to share just in case it may be beneficial for some readers who have a huge shop.

      Have a great weekend my friend.

    Serge, this is a great idea and I can see how this will be very handy for you. I only wish my shop was big enough for luxuries like this :).

    • Mark, all is in the perception of the observer. My first shop was 8′ X 8′, exterior measurements. You know what, everyone were jealous ! In such a tiny space I had a wall workbench, a table saw, a lathe, a radial arm saw, a drill press, a band saw. That was in the early ’70s. The secret is organization.

      Best,

      PS: More organization ideas to come on my blog ! 🙂

        Serge, my first shop when I was 16 was in my parents basement and consisted of a 2×4 workbench, my dad’s skill saw, my own jig saw, a handsaw and some screw drivers and wrenches. My fist projected that I designed here was a 4×8 pool table that even had a table level adjustment mechanism.

        When I bought my first house in 1978 it had a one car garage and had room for a workbench. I renovated the entire house and justified to my wife the purchase of a 9″ Beaver Rockwell table saw to build her new kitchen cabinets.

        The next house had a small one car garage that I could fit my table saw in but no work bench so I made a fold down one.

        When my job took me out east I was looking for a house with a workshop or space to build one. I got lucky and found one with a 20’x24′ building that I turned into my current shop. I have a radial arm saw, bandsaw, table saw, planner, jointer, workbench, 8′ cabinet with mitre saw, a sink and a small area for my beer making hobby.

        I have no room left to spare so I am looking forward to your future organization ideas :).

        • Mark,

          Well, if each and every woodworker could tell their own story ! Yours is interesting as well.

          About future organization ideas, be happy because I still have a few in mind, and even sketched on paper. 🙂

          Serge

    Salut Serge

    Quel esprit constructif en perpétuelle activité!!!

    Bonne idée que de le mettre sur roulettes ( Je dois dire que dans mon modeste atelier tout est sur roulettes pour pouvoir utiliser au mieux le moindre espace). J’ai un copain qui lui a mis tous les meubles de son appartement sur roulettes pour faciliter le ménage de ” printemps”

    Comme toi je pose souvent me outils portatifs près du sol ( au cas où il y aurait une chute !!)

    Au plaisir d’une nouvelle idée

    • Salut Jack,

      En effet, en perpétuelle activité, tel un volcan ! (mais énergie en moins) 🙂 Par chance que j’ai un canal pour disperser ces idées !

      Au plaisir…
