Don’t Let Storage Issues Sink Your Summer Hobby

Summer + Outside = Toys! Especially when you live near water. One problem that arises is where does one keep and organize all said toys? Well if you're into kayaking these floatables definitely aren't something small you can just hideaway in any old corner.

Here's a quick and easy build to tuck away your vessels and make them easy to access when the water calls to you!

Big thanks to Rob Rein from Ginger Woodworks for sharing his kayak storage project with us and for using SPAX®! Here are some excerpts from his blog post that we hope will help you solve at least one of your summer storage stressors.

Kayak Storage complete

Building behind my shed had some limitations as my neighbors fence line is fairly close, leaving little room to work with. That being said, I decided to build face frames for each end of the Kayak rack.

Kayak Rack Construction

This allowed me to place each face frame at either side of the shed, and then assemble my Kayak rack in its permanent location.

Once the Face frames where complete I was able to run the 117 inch 2 by 4’s from one face frame to another. I used 4 runners on the top and the bottom and 3 in the two middle sections.

Zero pre-drilling, saving time and hassle.

Shaped like an arrow, the four edges displace the wood fibers upon insertion and thus create space for the core diameter of the screw.
