Step 1

simple storage rack made from pipes and flanges

Attach End Caps

This simple storage rack is made from pipes and flanges. It works best with a wall that is already covered by drywall.

Purchase three each of 12" galvanized pipes, flanges and end caps.

Screw each end cap to the end of a pipe.

Step 2

Screw in the Flanges

Use a stud finder to locate and mark three wall studs. Screw flanges into the studs using long screws. Use a square or straight board in between screwing in each flange to ensure they are properly aligned (Image 1).

Tighten pipes into the flanges (Image 2).

Step 3

flat stock rack utilizes gussets attached to studs

Create a Flat Stock Rack

If the workshop has open studs, try creating this flat stock rack that utilizes gussets that are attached to the studs.

Step 4

Cut the Gussets

Cut 2 pieces of 3/4" plywood into equal triangles to create each gusset.

Cut a 2" x 4" to fit between the plywood triangles. When cutting the corner, make sure the board is oriented in the same direction as the triangles.

Step 5

Finish the Assembly

Clamp the three pieces together (Image 1), then drill holes through all three.
Insert 1/4" carriage bolts. Use a washer with the nut (Image 2).

To mount the rack, use a right-angle drill to drill between studs. Use a carriage bolt to attach the gusset to the stud (Image 3).
