Site-Built Trim Rack
This rack forces the delivery guys to stack trim neatly.
I built this trim rack because I wanted our job sites to be more efficient and more organized, and I wanted to stand above other trim carpenters in our area. I’ve seen a lot of damage to trim when it’s just thrown somewhere on the floor and the stack falls over. This rack forces the delivery guys to stack trim neatly, and I make sure I’m on site to show them exactly how I want it done. I used 8-ft. 2×4 lumber, and all the attachments are made with structural screws (i.e., TimberLoks or LedgerLoks). The cuts are made at 10° and the spacing of shelves is about 2 ft. The horizontal runs are 48 in., and bracing ties everything together. I decided to place a pair of 45° angled braces at the ends, and lag it to the subfloor to counteract any potential for racking. I built it all on site in only a couple of hours.
