Carpentry and Woodworking Storage
There are many people around the country who make a living as a carpenter or woodworker, and there are others who simply do it as a hobby. Woodworking can be a great side job, and if you’re skilled at it, you can make a decent income on crafting tables, cabinets, and other items that people want. However, turning your garage into a wood shop can be a challenge, especially if you need to store large pieces of lumber. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can provide a self-storage unit that’s ideal for your carpentry supplies.
Keep Lumber Cool and Dry
If you’ve ever worked with wood, then you know that moisture and heat can do quite a bit of damage. It’s important to keep your lumber cool and dry to protect against warping and cracking. If you’ve ever tried to make a flat tabletop out of a warped or twisted piece of wood, then you know how difficult it can be. One of our climate-controlled storage spaces can be an ideal spot for keeping your wood safe from heat and damp.
Tools and Equipment
On top of lumber, you also need quite a few pieces of equipment and several tools to make a living as a carpenter. You may have band saws, table saws, lathes, and more that you need a safe spot for, and if you only work on projects during the summer, you can store these large tools during the rest of the year. You also most likely have hammers, chisels, and other hand tools that take up space, and you can find adequate storage in one of our units. If you have a large tool chest that’s on casters, our drive-up access makes it easy to roll it right into your rented space.
Making Room in Your Garage
Perhaps you’ve decided that you want to transform your garage into a full-time wood shop, and that means you’ll have to store your lawnmower, garden supplies, and maybe even your classic car elsewhere. We have space for all of those items, so if you’re spending time during your retirement working on custom tables and cabinets, you won’t have to worry about your garage being cluttered (or a stray piece of wood falling and dinging your vintage automobile).
We offer monthly leases on all of our storage units, so if you only work on carpentry for part of the year, or you buy your lumber in bulk and need somewhere to store it for a few months, we can help you find the best space. You can access your unit on any day of the year, and with 24-hour surveillance and a computer-controlled gate, you’ll be able to rest easy, knowing that your supplies are safe and sound.
