initial sketch that I finally got to do last night for car racks comes up with 3 4x8 sheets of decking and 277 feet of material. An online calc got me that 1.75"x.095 square would be adequate for my worst loading case. haven't yet run the calcs to compare to smaller thicker in both cost and weight.

I'd also like to do my decks out of angle and T to hold wood inside the frame rather than on top of box tubing to be lower profile. I don't know how to math that at all since angle would be counting on the decking for torsional rigidity unlike closed shapes.

liking and currently pursuing the suggestion of pallet racking as base construction material. Before decking, bracing, and feet to spread the load, looks like I should be into it for not much over $300 for (2) 12' x 24" 3' tall driveover countertops. Add a bit for ramps, haven't determined length or design for those yet.

lumber and steel prices are crazy now.  your probably better off with racking stuff at that cost. 


3 work benches and 2 sheets of peg board was another 250$ yesterday.  crazy.  i should have just used pallet racking for my work benches too at half the cost.

should have my frameworks tomorrow.
$5 ea for 4' crossbars tonight, spare parts from a guy who got a bunch of racks to put cars on in his shop (3h 3w, 3 4' sections deep for whole car in. cool).
$40 ea for 6' 24" uprights from the Bergen guy tomorrow.
then I've just gotta chop, foot, brace, ramp, and top them. and probably take the lid off the toolbox I got from Ian so it'll fit under, since I know I won't have a full 36" under.

They guy I bought my cross bars from did what we did, smike. To a toys*r*us.

$18,000. 4 trailer loads (two each roughly 28 and 34’ tag enclosed). All paid for by the time he turned a quarter of it. And they’re using a LOT of it in their 60x65 space they run late models out of.
