Being in a middle of planning of my new garage shop, I wonder what you guys use to store raw material (bar stock, sheet, etc.) and leftovers in your shops. Photos will be much appreciated.

"Search" brought a few interesting threads. For example:

http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/showthread.php?t=23521&highlight=metal+storage
http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/showthread.php?t=8583&highlight=metal+storage

but some of them (the older ones), unfortunately, have pictures missing.

P.S. In addition to metal and plastic, it would also be interesting to see your wood storage (naturally, being machinists, we just store wood and never do any woodworking ;) )

The shelves on the short side are attached via hangers to superstrut so they can be moved at will.

I have seen other stairs with the same thing done to them. Makes me wish that I had more steps around the house.
