My sheet good storage solution

I finally built some sheet good storage that I’ve been wanting since I put up my shop in 2000. It has a 2×12 torsion box sort of base that has a 2×12 attached at one end and two sheets of 3/4 plywood for sides. I put a very heavy duty wheel under the open end and three large T-strap hinges on the other. The whole thing swings out very easily so that I can grab any sheet in the pile and not have to move six of them out of the way to get to the one I want. When I have what I want it shoves right up against the wall. Easy peasy!

I got so excited when it was done I actually worked on a project for my wife, her upteenth back scratcher which was rejected for the umpteenth time. Back to the shop to make it better.

Please let me know what you think of my very large organizer. Thanks for looking.

Maybe she’s subtlety hinting that she wants you to scratch her back.

I second that. Especially if you gave her the orange sheetgoods lifting gizmo on the pictures as a back scratcher.

My wife is not subtle. I’m always scratching by hand and she has owned no less than six back scratchers besides me.

Soda, yeah, maybe I should hand her my sheet carrier and see if that suites her.

Thanks for looking guys.

Maybe a sturdy woodworking rasp would do… Or getting a pet hedgehog?

By the way, how do you store the shorter pieces? I clearly see that you could always add a set of front storage bins to your “cart” but I’m curious as to how you handle them currently. I’ve been strongly considering building one of these to handle the SG and scraps for the last years, and always keen to picking new ideas beforehand.

I made a similar rack that has 2×4’s running up the wall on edge behind it, I have long narrow offcuts in there but you could easily put in some little shelves to take short pieces.
