Topic tags/keywords: jig tip question

This is probably a case by case basis, but I’m looking for suggestions on what to design the back half of my lumber storage cart for. The front half is taller lumber (1-2×3ish x 6-9 feet), with a 4 tier small-medium flat board (plywood etc) shelf. I was going to make the middle into lengthwise shelves, and the back for huge flat boards 4×8’, or 4-4’, etc.

As I’m looking around though, I have probably enough small scraps of hardwood to start a small reclaimed business. So then I thought I could make the middle shelves sturdy, with maybe rollerblade wheels that come out with a spring loaded rest on the floor. The down side to that would be that I’d have to pull it out everytime to peruse, then stick it back in, instead of just standing there and getting a better bird’s eye view of it all, you know, kind of like how my shop is now, except it’d be all together instead of in about 15 different piles.

I had a couple ideas such as making a panel saw on one part, or a clamp rack. Or, putting 2 different book shelves on either side, their backs facing each other, and the cases facing outwards, and using the gap between as a sheet storage.
