Suspended Shelf Racks

Overhead and out of the way. Jeff Lohr's wood storage shelves are suspended from the ceiling joists above his workbench.

I eff I-ohr, a furniture maker in Pennsylvania, uses the space I above his workbench to store wood and furniture parts. Staggered shelves give him great storage flexibility. Because he mounted his shelf racks to the ceiling and wall, the area underneath is unimpeded by support posts.

Lohr often stores flitches of veneer on these shelves, weighing them down with a heavy plank. Being near the ceiling helps keep the veneer dry. If there is access from the end, you can also store long lumber on the shelves. Lohr hangs clamps on the front edge of the lower shelf.
