This winters project has been to refinish the basement, in doing so I thought there had to be a better way than corners to keep skis and stuff. Hit the interweb and found a few pics and built this.



I did it with 1" boards and 3/4 dowels. I had everything but the dowels. I got the boards from a hutch I built for a small desk my daughter used, that has been since trashed and the hutch doesnt fit anything else, and had the brackets leftover from a shelf job. 2 - 1"x12"x54", wood glue, drill, 3/4 wood boring bit, 5 - 1 1/4" sheetrock screws, 4 bracket screws, 4 - 2" deck screws to hold it to studs, Honestly, 2 hours, but the boards were already stained. I stained the dowels and polyed them after 1/2 hr. The dowels are 1/2 inch apart, and there is 10" center to center between sets.


In retrospect, a 2x8 for the back wall part would have worked better, but it was a idea that I came up with and whipped together with mostly stuff on hand.


I will have to lay the boots down when I get the drop ceiling in, but my skis only clear the floor by 3 in so I dont want to go lower.

If the drop ceiling is in the way of the boots you can make a similar shelf for the boots.
Looks good

Put the laser on it and found out where the bottom of the drop ceiling will be. Dropped the rack 2.5 in and we should be clear.
