Ever since building my ramshackle storage/power shed year before last I’ve watched for some decent shelving. It’s just so very expensive, and I got along with expedient measures till I couldn’t find a damn thing in there.

Then one day a neighbor gathered together a whole bunch of stuff he wanted hauled to the dump. I love these sessions, because people don’t really want it at the dump, specifically, they just want it gone. And so much of it is so perfectly usable. Hell, I filled half my woodshed with junk wood people paid me to haul off. ‘Way better than juniper, and not half as hard on chainsaw chains.

But not in my most optimistic dreams did I expect somebody to throw away three complete and hardly-even-scratched garage shelving units.100_3720That’s the 50% that’s left: It’s a very small storage shed and two walls are already taken up with power equipment and clothes and tools. But I’ll find uses for it.

In the meantime it’ll just be nice to be able to find stuff.shelf

    Oh, how terrific! I had to leave a lot of good shelving behind in Calif. because I just ran out of time and couldn’t take it apart… so it wouldn’t fit in the truck. Just one of those things. I’ve slowly replaced it, actually with better stuff, but I’d be money ahead if I could have brought what I had.

    Suggestion based on experience:

    Firmly anchor those shelves to the wall.

    Don’t ask . . .
