I needed a place to store sheet goods that was out of the way yet easily accessible and this fit the bill. It’s made from a couple 2×8’s, a 4×8 sheet of 1/2” plywood, a couple 2×4’s, a 3” heavy-duty fixed caster from Harbor Freight, and 3 strap hinges. Total cost less than $30.

I had to drill new holes for the caster to lower it’s footprint to fit under some wall sockets; but otherwise very straightforward. Cut the plywood on the diagonal (I made the rear piece larger than the front). Screw an 8’ 2×8 to a 4’ 2×8 and attach the plywood to the sides. Mount the wheel on the front and attach a suitable support to your wall if needed. Prop it up level, attach the hinges, and you’re done.

Looks like I’ll have to steal that idea too.

Greg, this is a nice idea and it organizes and stores sheet goods well. It does get heavy when fully loaded but it is a nice compact way of storing plywood sheets.

What a good idea, works well for not taking up too much space.
