Wanting to design some type of shelving unit for horizontal storage of
lumber within a dome style metal quonset. No vertical wall i.e. all
curved galvanized metal with 5/16 bolts joining each arch. I was
thinking on anchoring fairly rigid, thick metal vertical columns to
the 5/16 bolts with some type of framework at bottom then set up
supports and shelves across all. But I was concerned of the "pull" on
the bolt (and the stress on the arch sealant).
Anyone have any ideas? I'm thinking that I am faced with setting up a
straight forward HD metal shelving system with the associated steep
costs. I'm tapped out on other alternatives. Currently, I have been
storing on the C-slab floor with wooden supports every 2 ft or so, but
this is beginning to take up considerable floor space.
