it's driving me crazy
Somewhere in FWW, FHB, or AW there is an article ~ short one ~ on
using 1" conduit cut to length and inserted into an angled hole in 2x4
to make an adjustable lumber storage rack or adjustable shelving.
I've flipped through all my issues and I know it's hiding from me.

Drilled 1" holes, 16" apart, in the edges at 5 degree angle (pointing

Was this plumbing pipe or EMT? I seem to recall one using EMT but
can't find it again. I need a rack but only want to make it once.
I used iron pipe, per the instructions. Just checked and it's 7/8" od

I'm with the others - I think you pretty much nailed it. I did mine by:
- sistering 2x4's onto the existing wall 2x4's. Didn't want to be
drilling large holes in structural framing
- made a jig to bore 7/8" hole (using a spade bit) into the 2x4's at a 2
degree upward angle. 2 degree was what "looked about right" to me.
- nailed/screwed them up - trying very hard to keep them level across all
- inserted 12" long 3/4" galvanized pipe into the holes
- voila' - lumber rack
