Silly question…

First I am finally going to make a Mobile SHEET GOOD and scrap cart. SO much of my sheets goods are ruined from laying on my concrete floor.

I am going to make a 2 by 8 foot cart with casters for storing my sheet goods and on the back scrap wood.

What ANGLE would you make the upright part that the sheet goods would rest against….

I am thinking 5 to 7 degrees

I found no need for an angle. the cart had three sides firmly screwed together.
something like a box with one side missing. tallest heavier items should be in the middle.
my 4’ x 3’ cart was on casters. the long pieces were stored vertical – not horizontal.
99” of my work was wood panels – so I did not need much space for lumber storage.
of course this will not work if you have an eight foot ceiling.
this is similar to what I had with the back part closed in for rigidity.

but of course, this would be the cat’s meow – probably 6 degree angle.
