Where does all the crap come from?!
#9
  
When you have a small work space, you have to get creative. That means keeping a lot of lumber outside. Today I pulled the lumber racks down and spaced them away from the wall the width of a 2x4 ( 3 1/2" ). This allows me to slide sheets of plywood in behind the other stuff. 'Cause nothing takes up a small work shop like a sheet of plywood.

Because I consolidated 2 piles of junk into one, my racks were going to have a lot of wasted space. Luckily, as I was cleaning I found 2 pieces of rebar on the ground. I just drilled a hole in each upright and hammered them in. Used up the wasted space, it was a quick fix, and they're strong.

Anyway, just a little quick and dirty job but it always feels good to get 'er done!

That looks like random stacking. Are the pieces organized by project?

All 'good' wood is inside. This wood gets used fairly soon but some of it has been outside more than a year. It is organized by shape. Sort of. I get most of it for cheap if not free so I just need a place to keep it and don't have room in the shop. Some of it is cedar which holds up well outside. And it is pretty much covered. As a boat builder I am used to building outside anyway.

This month is 'get rid of crap' for me and make a work area I can actually work in; note, no mention of "shop". The wife's junk is leaving, and there may be a war commencing soon. Her stuff and mine don't mix. Never have. That's why I stopped by your post. Hoping for solutions.

An entire wall of the house is covered with mostly finished lumber. I notice that cedars and Doug fir are the most stable. Red oak and maples don't appreciate fresh air.

He probably did a C&P here.

Putzing, the new hobby

Nice but I do not recommend storing your project lumber outside.  Especially plywood.  Definitely MDF.
Everything is a prototype so its a one of a kind.
