Go to a corner to store an abundance of stock

If you have unlimited shop space, stop reading here. For the rest of us, storing project materials poses a major problem. Just one full sheet of plywood covers up a lot of precious wall space. Move your materials into a corner. You can stow everything from full sheets of plywood (if your shop has 8' or more of headroom) to cutoff pieces into an area that extends only 40" along each wall. Construct the dividers from plywood and 2 x 2 stock, and attach them to the floor and ceiling. Add shelves to hold cutoff pieces and small stock, if desired.
