Needed a better method for storing plywood sheets as well as various cutoff and 8ft dimensional lumber so after a quick search on the net I came up with this.

Combination of deck screws and pocket screws were used to hold it all together.
Base frame was 2×4s with a 3/4 plywood base on top, the two A-Frame panels were 1/2 plywood and the shelving inside the A-Frame was 3/4 plywood. It all rolls on 3” swivel/locking casters

I built Steve Ramsey’s version of this. It’s one of those projects that make you scratch your head and say…”why didn’t I do this sooner?”
Thanks for sharing.

This looks great to me. My own version if one of these is some sort of franked-hybrid. (I should do a write up on it some day.)

I can’t quite tell from the pictures how this one stores sheet goods, though.

That camera angle makes it look like the right side (where sheet goods are stored) is at 90 degrees, but it has the same slope as the lefts side.

I did and thought the same. lol. Great storage.

Paul, That’s a good setup using pocket screws. I might have gone that route if I didn’t have Steve’s plan. Great job!

Have your say...
