I made this rack right after I bought my shop (house came with it HA HA) and had to do it quickly so it is not perfect, but it works for now.
The base is build out of 2×6’s and 7/16” OSB over it. The sides and middle are made from 2×4’s lag screwed to the 2×6’s. The cart is split into two sides, one for sheet goods and one for lumber. I think it is about 2’ wide, but I can’t remember and don’t want to go out to measure. The storage height is 4’ tall and 8’ long. Of course it filled up too fast and I ended up adding a little storage box on the back. Next I think I’ll add a top to it so the sides don’t bow out anymore.
For know part of my clamps are just riding on the side of it as you will see. Don’t worry, the lumber does not get stacked like this usually, I just threw it on there today so I could clean up another rack. It’ll get rearranged properly tomorrow.
The whole cart rolls on large casters and rolls surprisingly easy.
