A Wood Storage Cart for the Garage Shop!

I decided I finally needed to address the elephant-sized pile of scrap wood in my shop. I've needed a scrap wood cart for a long time and I took the time to design up a version that is, I think, a great compromise between size and capacity.

As you probably know I, like many of you, work out of my garage so space is at an absolute premium. I would love to have a giant wood cart that can hold full sized lumber but I know that just isn't realistic. This design is 6' long, 25" deep, and about 4' tall.

This project was pretty straightforward and would just for a great shop project that will both enhance some skills and add some much needed organization to your shop. In total this project requires

(2-1/2) sheets of 3/4" plywood

(2-3) 2x4's

(6) casters

Using the cut sheets included in the plans this project goes together pretty quick and within a couple of hours you will have a wood storage cart capable of holding quite a bit of scrap wood.
