I am new to posting on this board but have been lurking for several
weeks and appreciate the information gleaned from the veterans out
there. I am starting several projects at once for a new house
including two new closet units and kitchen pantry storage. The
problem is that I dont have room in my shop or garage to store the
shelves (plywood mostly) as I make them. I have thought of storing
them in a large crawl space under the house on a lumber rack and
perhaps wrapping them in saran wrap or polyethylene to keep the
excessive moisture out--cant do much about the temperature variations.
Does anyone think this will damage the plywood? thanks in advance
Plastic wrap is how our local woodworking school and the millwork shop
where I buy my wood keep projects together. The wood is not totally
encapsulated, just wrapped enough to keep everything together.
The stuff they use is what you'll see wrapped around grocery pallets
shipped from the distribution center to the stores. It comes on big
rolls, with a device similar to a billy club used to hold and apply
Yep, use it all the time. OP suggested "perhaps wrapping them in saran wrap
or polyethylene to keep the
excessive moisture out" which, to me implies a bit more than your post.
Or did you read his?

"shrink wrap" really isn't, but that's what everyone calls it anyway. I've
worked in factories, stores, warehouses... Everybody calls it "shrink
