Swingman's Plywood Rack

I built a version of Swingman's plywood rack as shown here (Swingman's work, not mine):

I followed the same basic dimensions as shown, but put mine up on casters. This allows me to move and angle the rack to get at material while storing tight to the wall under my wood storage. The only issue is the casters raised the rack significantly and blocked one of the outlets I had hoped not to. Oh well, a heavy duty extension cord solved that. The rack did show a tendency to tip with a piece of Melamine-covered MDF on it, but once loaded with other plywood it was fine.
The front railing was just the right height. It allowed me to raise a piece of plywood over it to set it on the rack while still being tall enough to keep pieces from falling over.
Thanks Swingman!
(Aside: Weather) Wow, jelly bean (the good ones, not those tiny poorly flavored jelly bellys) sized hail and it's dark at 5:00. It hasn't been getting fully dark until 6:30.

The only issue is

Drill a hole in the plies.
Glad it worked out. I may build one, with casters, soon. I need a movable sheetgoods cart.

Here is the cart I built on wheels. It holds a ton of stuff, plywood, lumber and shorts. It takes up no wall space and is surprisingly compact. It is on wheels but I should have used steel wheels. I never move the thing but the wheels need to be sturdy and not flatten out, so steel it should be. Also, I put 2 wheels in the middle and one on each end, like the lumber carts at Home Depot.
I located it next to my TS and that makes it super easy to pick out and store stuff. Also the lumber slots make a great place to stuff my TS fence when removed from the saw. Here is a sketchup and a built photo.

That really is a great design. I'll have to make one when I move the shop out to my sharn.

It looks similar to the one I built a few years ago. Two comments about it .
#1 I double sided the cart. One side is like yours and used for smaller cu toffs. The other side has a 3 1/2" lip on the bottom and is used to store full and partial sheets. The whole thing is about 12" wide.
#2 I have a small shop (12x24) and used steel casters (knowing the load it would have on it, I did not want to risk flat siding rubber ones). The abi lity to swing the plywood cart up against the wall, where it is out of the way, but still giving full double sided storage, is a God send.
