The problem, all that stuff leaning against the wall:

Did an image search for ideas, found these:

The solution to the problem is my version of a storage cart starting with a saved 4' by 6' pallet that stall mats came on years ago. Added two 2x4s and casters:

Ordered one 7 shelf unit for the vertical storage spaces:

And two of these for the horizontal slide in storage spaces:

The first one is expanded to fit and screwed down to the base:

Set the bottom half of the horizontal shelf in place:

Had to add short 2x4s to support the legs of the second shelf:

Got the rest of the legs on last night:

And two sets of shelves on today:

Still have one set of shelves, need to decide if I want them at the top or in the bottom section.

Several, all used and abused.
I have the same problem and never knew of, or even thought of, a solution to it. I'm looking forward to see this all done and loaded up!!!

---------------------------- I'm looking forward to see this all done and loaded up!!!

Me too, but it is 74 degrees outside so the work on the cart will have to wait while I get outside stuff done.

Decided not to use the last set of shelves for now. I can install them later if needed. So it is finished for now. :thumbsup:

Added 1/2 inch EMT at a slant for the 4 foot wide sheets to lean against:

Moved the stuff from the wall onto the cart:

Still have a lot of room left on and in the shelves for lumber:
