    I have a table in the corner of my shop. I just lay the doors on it with a blanket between them, and another blanket over them. Works for me!

    I do the same as CJ Chet. I take my doore off only for a day or 2 at a time, so the blankets work just right.

    But deveildog has a great idea, If i do get to that point with mine, the thats the rout I'm going.

    Don't spend that kind of money. This is the way I store mine. The first couple of pix are the best/strongest way: It is just a 12" shelf bracket ($1.70ea & Lowes) I put the end in my vice and bent it 90* just so the doors would have something to catch on if the slide to the edge. If you want to get fancy you can buy pipe insulation and put it over the bracket so as not to scratch anything.

    The third pic is using a couple of hangers (also at Lowes, but $2.99 I think). I don't like them as well for 2 reasons. 1) tend to bend down with a lot of weight (I haven't bent straight and dropped the doors, but I'm not real comfortable with it) 2) Since they come down in a "J" instead of up like the shelf bracket You can't get them very close to the ceiling which is where I like them because it keeps them out of the way.

    Last pic just show how they hang in my garage.

    Give it a shot all for less then $10.

    PS. If you couldn't tell there are a pair of doors on each hanger pair.
