I understand the point you are making, but I can’t quit the thought you still have quite a bit of risk, in the transfer from resting in a rack, and onto the jack. Now if there were always 2 people on 2 ladders to get it down, then you just made a cheap forklift, and I would say splendid. By yourself, it’s really hard to hold a big board anywhere along it’s length while on a ladder, or even above your head on flat ground. Lot’s of potential for the board to drop, or yourself while trying to hold onto it.

I think this is why you don’t see wood storage high on the wall over the tools. It’s an unused space, but better used for cabinets with smaller items.
