Last weekend I was digging through my makeshift wood rack looking for a piece of molding when an avalanche of wood hit me squarely on the noggin. Several rooms away, my daughter learned a few new swear words. I think before I pile all my wood back up (to fall on me again), I’m going to install something like Triton’s lumber rack system — six shelves that hold up to 110 pounds each in an easy-to-see (and hard to drop on myself) format.
Triton’s rack protrudes 12” from the wall, and the system’s total height measures 41 inches. Triton also claims that the powder coated steel tubes install easily both indoors and out.
The lumber rack usually lists at $70, but Rockler cut the price to $49 in its latest circular — pricing good through September 3, 2007. You can knock an additional $10 off for joining the Rockler Rewards program, too, which makes the Triton rack look much more attractive than building your own.
Triton Lumber Rack System: $40. Teaching your daughter swear words after she turns 15: priceless.
