Photo: The bottom of the plywood rack. The risers are there to raise the height of the dividers so that full sheets can easily slide in
Photo: The storage sits 2" off the floor.

Photo: The two dividers are 3/4" ACX plywood. The back, top, and right (wall) side are shop-grade 3/4" ACX. The shop-grade stuff is actually only 5/8" thick.
Photo: It took me awhile to figure out the assembly order for this thing. I screwed the shelves in place before installing the right side..

Photo: The left side is divided to store 4 of my folding "StoreHorse" sawhorses (top & bottom) and the Ridgid outfeed tables in the middle...
Photo: I added this additional storage to back to hold shorter cutoffs. It's only ~6" wide and extends 2' feet back to the wall. I think I can still store a few of my pipe clamps on the back side, as long as I don't go more than 2-3 deep...

Photo: During all my grand planning for all the different storage units I was going to build for the new shop, dowel was a constant struggle.
