Sheet Storage?

Any suggestions on how to build a rack to store laminates? Does anyone make these? Looking to store 4x8 sheets horizontally. Thanks.

they wouldn't need to be horizontal.... even at a near vertical angle with some 3/4" sheet stock to weigh them down would work.

If and it is a big IF....

If you have the room, a good solid and flat 9x5 area for your sheet goods is ideal. Even better is multiple flat areas with about 12 to 18 inches separation.

Use the right tool for the job.

Wood Magazine has a plan for a good roll around cart for sheet good. I may be wrong but I believe it is free. Go to I got the plans out of "450+ Best Ever Shop Tips". There is one mistake in the plans. The location of the lowest dado in the side panel needs to be raised to eliminate interferance with the 3/4" plywood on the base. Other than that its a good design.

RE: Sheet Storage?

Thanks for the replies. Tom that is an excellent suggestion and a great design. I found a company that sells racks for 4x8 materials called Edwards Storage Systems. Anyone use these? Are they worth the price. Right now I am leaning towards just making one.
Here is there link;

That is how I stored all my sheet goods. I had a commercial sheet goods cart that I could roll to the shop door to unload my sheets from the truck then move them to any location in the shop with ease. It was also very easy to pull out a sheet when needed. I ordered it from Graingers years ago.
