Go to an outdoors store and buy four of the HD foam blocks that clip onto the gunwhales of a canoe. Set them on the roof, stack your sheet goods, tie 'em down and drive away. No scratches.

My first thought is that if the existing rack is does not provide any easy way to secure a sheet of plywood, it won't be real easy to secure your box either. Your box idea is going to be pretty heavy for a car roof and unless you have a pretty long roof on the car, you're going to have a lot of unsupported surface in a box that long. You don't say what the vehicle is, but at first blush it seems like you're over engineering your solution.
