I've got a small pile right now on the floor in the corner. 10' pieces and shorter. A lot of 6" to 3' pieces. I'm getting really sick of it lying there and would like to do something. It's way to expensive to throw away plus anybody who works on cars needs pieces from time to time.

So how do you store your Sanford and Son pile? I bought some steel shelving from Lowes but that got filled up fast with other stuff! Maybe that's the best way?

8' so I could stand most of it up. Maybe build a rack against the wall with a chain to keep it from falling? I'm trying to get as much stuff up off the floor as possible. I really like the clean look of everything on shelves, etc.

I haven't had a shop in years so I'm trying to set this one up nicely. I hate a cluttered shop!

I don't have many long pieces. Maybe I should put those up in the rafters? It has a ceiling now but no attic access door! LOL! :-k

Metal is a bigger pain 'cause its in so many shapes and sizes (especially when you sabre saw pieces off the car ) But ignoring those (which used to end up outside the garage), the spaces between the 2x4 studs makes for excellent storage. Nail (or screw) a board across a pair and you now have a storage rack. A couple of short ledgers and a piece of 1x4 or 1x6 and you have a little shelf for things like coffee and oil cans (remember oil cans?).
