    We made this, which holds 8 x 4 sheets and offcuts.

    I bought this from Jag many years back, I then got a metal guy to fit every other section with a higher bar so the bigger panels can go on their sides and take up less room and not flop over. Best investment when i moved to my unit. Dont think i ordered a panel for six months as i could finally see what i had in stock straight away.

    In 4 piles in the workshop…sort of sums up my storage policy! Generate more offcuts than i can cope with as most jobs are based around multiples / divisions of 8×4 or 10×5 sheets…so a lot of 200-300mm strips of comp and useless narrow panels of opal acrylic.

      I had this problem and started to order A3/A4 panels from any offcuts on an order. Nice piles under the bench ready for when i need them and no more long thin off cuts to deal with.

      If you have the inclination you could spend a few hours cutting down to A4/A3s if you use them to clear some space?
