Was built off of a photo I’d seen somewhere. Footprint is 2.5’x8’. Has room for short (<4 feet) offcuts, long boards, and sheet good.

Built it together with my dad. Was a lot of fun!

Looks like a really well designed rack, with a good distribution of vertical and horizontal storage. Thanks for posting.

That is a nice cart. It looks like it is real handy for storing all those offcuts that we seem to collect as well as holding full sheets of plywood. This is a project that most shops could use.

Nice rack. Never said that to a guy before. ;-)

I was asked to share some of the details about the design of this rack so here goes (Please note that I haven’t tested it with a lot of weight yet, so you may want to tweak it if you think it needs strengthening):

1. Built out of cheap 3/4” and 1/2” OSB, and some 2×4 material.
2. It’s divided into three sections. Shorts, boards, and sheets.
3. The base dimensions are 30”x96”.
4. The division between the sections are: shorts = 8 1/2”, boards = 12”, sheets = 6”.
5. Everything was built out of the 3/4 OSB except for the short dividers and the ledges (1/2” OSB), and 3 supports 2×4 beams across the width of the base.
6. 4 casters were attached to the 2 support beams on the edges.
7. The original photo had the shelf walls diagonal so it’s easier to lean the shorts and sheets over them, but I wanted to get this done faster, so I just built them straight up.

That’s it. Building it was straight forward. It helps to have another pair of strong hands with the assembly.

Goodluck,
Boaz

I like the bins for “cutoffs”. I’ve never been able to manage these short pieces very well.

I like the low design of it. The bins are quite handy I am sure, reaaly should’ve added a few of them to mine…. Oh well next time.

Sweet. Perusing around and found this. I’m going to need something like that… now that my shop is small in the new place.

This was good timing as I’m gettting ready to build a rack myself. I like this layout better than what I was going to do. Great job, thanks for sharing.
