This plywood/scraps/drywall rack was stolen from Dadoo (thanks)... hey, if you’re going to be a thief, you might as well be a courteous one.
My shop had become unuseable because of plywood not mixing well with scrap lumber, so it was definately time for a change. I also have drywall left over from jobs all the time, and have a stash of bamboo flooring I’m not willing to let go of yet, so I had to make mine bigger. There is a divider to separate the DW from the ply, and 4 sections in the scap bin (there could be as many as I want, the dividers are just notched and held in place with friction and threatening glances). The last pic shows my cheating ways. Instead of casters, I bought two $10 floor dollies from Harbor Frieght and simply screwed them to the 2×4 base. They are rated for 1,000 lbs. apiece (not that I trust that rating) , they should work for this load.
Ply is CDX from neighbors hurricane shutters, 2×4 left over from assorted jobs, same as the 1x.
This isn’t a beauty, but is a beast and just what my small shop needed. Now it’s on to cabinets for bags of concrete, sand , drywall hot mud, spray texture mud, etc. , etc. , .....
