    I went the vertical route. Bought 1 10 ft 2x2 and cut it in half. Bought 1 inch dowel and cut to size. The biggest expense was the 1" drill bit. Definately cleaned up the office.

    Exactly what I was planning on making, the 2x4 and dowels have been sitting in my garage for 3 years. I'll try to do it this weekend. What did you use to secure the 2x4 to the wall? just nail it through?

    Both very cool racks. Has anyone figured out a way to "lock" your boards to a rack? I have a condo that we rent out on occasion and we have to bring boards home and/or lock my boards in the closet.

    I got a guy out of New Zealand that can make one for a cool $250K (USD of course) that's garaunteed to outperform any other rack.

    Thanks. Just fired off an E-mail to Roy. Now seriously, any locking rack ideas?

    Ok, ok... maybe you could run some strong wire cable (i'm looking at my braided metal laptop securer thingy now as an example) through your leash loops. Not foolproof but you'd definitely know if they were tampered with. A good security deposit can buy a nice board or two.

    McLovin make sure you SCREW it into a STUD because there is more weight than you think. That was my plan but the only wall I could use used to have a window there that was drywalled over as the office was an addition. I had to go to the ceiling and screw in there. You dont want to hear that CRASH that makes ya cry.

    pilot hole and 4 inch screw - make sure you find a stud to secure it too.

    Anyone use the hangers that they sell in surf shops? I have a handful of them but worry it would be too much stress to have them hang by the rear fcs plug for long periods of time, years
