Jason, Dadoo and I have similar method for storing sheet goods. If you look at Dadoo's shop picture 4 gives a pretty good idea of the plywood cart that he has put in his shop. I use something similar but instead of fixing it to the studs I have made mine free standing. It can hold 30 sheets but is almost impossible to move if I have it loaded with more than 10 full sheets. We both have sized our lumber racks so that the plywood cart will fit underneath the lumber storage area. As a bonus since the studs making up the supports on the lumber rack are exposed there is additional storage space available between the studs for offcuts.

In my shop the lumber and plywood storage project out 2’ into the shop’s footprint and I have extended it about 16’ along the outside shop wall in order to be able to store molding and long boards.
