This wall-mounted scrap wood storage is perfect for small spaces that don't have much ground space. Going vertical with storage is always a good option, as it frees up ground space and takes advantage of unused space up high. It made such a difference in a garage. Take a look!

  • Attach Storage Unit to Wall

    Attach the storage unit to the wall spacers.

  • Load Wood Scraps!

    Load up all your scraps! The beauty of this unit is that you are able to store long pieces on top of the cubes and medium or small pieces inside of the cubes. The spacers between the unit and the wall also allows for large pieces of plywood to slide behind the unit for storage.
