Brief Description:  Build material rack to hold sheets on edge

The plan is to build a rack to hold all the material and finished cut flat parts. I began by rasing the cabinets 6", putting in the electrial then building out from the wall one 2 x 4 width. That got a header and footer of 1 x 6. It is spaced up from the floor 1/2". I knew the metal wouldn't slide very well on the pine so I cam up with the idea of making a trough of metal. While noodling this idea and wandering the local Lowes store I saw a piece of roof sheet material that would serve two purposes. One was to make a chanel for the material to slide in and the other was to protect it from things moving in the garage.

I don't have a brake here so the tools you see were what I used to form the chanel. The orange object is a dull ice spud and the hammer was used to flatten some of the bends in the panel and cork the bends I needed using the inside of the rack as a forming vee. I acutally got the bend started using a couple of 8' long angles, but finished the bend by pounding it gently into the vee of the wall. Uing the house as a forming tool. The 2 x 4 along the top of the metal has only 2 screws to prevent the metal from creeping up while taping along the break line to form the 90 degree bend.
