In the past I had a sheet goods cart that was just one “bay” and it was attached to the corner of a wall on two wheels with hinges so it can swing out. That turned out to be not as useful as I originally imagined because it was hard to actually see what I had in it and sift through all the offcuts of sheet goods. The hinge were also too close to the corner so when swinging it would hit the other wall and not swing open as far as I had thought it originally would.

A while back I saw Steve Ramsey’s video on his sheet goods cart. I had originally actually seen the version his was based on which was 8’ long and set out to make that. After thinking it through and watching his video I realized my shop is too small for that size and decided on his half-sized design. I had planned to build it after the towel cabinet (which took forever, see my towel cabinet project) and finally got around to it. It just so happened that Menards also recently had their cheap TigerPly plywood on sale for $25 a sheet and I figured it’d be fine for this application. It turned out to work fine but I would NOT recommend using it for anything else. It cupped immediately after I brought it home and cut it but again, this isn’t fine furniture I was building so the $15/sheet savings were great for this use.

In any case, I filled it up quickly as you can see in the pictures but it’s definitely nice to be able to roll it around to anywhere in the shop if necessary and move it away from the wall to have easier access to some of the bigger pieces on the back side.

There really isn’t much else to say so thanks for looking :)

That looks like very practical solution to storage where space is limited. Definitely on my to do list.
