edit – I actually did this before the workbench, but since I’m adding it to this series after the fact, it winds up as #2.
I designed this partly to learn more about using SketchUp, and partly because its something I’d like to make to keep organized and clean. After looking at what I usually keep on hand and the sizes of scraps I seem to accumulate, and combining some ideas from a few other mobile racks I’ve seen on LJs, I came up with this.
Its 24” wide, by 8 feet long, I’m intending to build it out of 3/4” OSB (1/2” OSB for the shelves and dividers, which will all be removable/adjustable). The back section is sized to be able to hold up to 12 sheets of 3/4” plywood (not that I ever have near that much on hand) and the front is divided into a shelving unit (2’ x 4’ x 12” deep), a tall 30” x 24” section for dowels and other long narrow stock, and a series of small bins (4’ long, 12” high, each bin about 12” wide).
Looking at it when I was done, I think I may have overbuilt it a little, I made each of the three front sections a seperate unit, I could probably simplify it a bit by giving them common sides and backs for example shrugs. Its the first thing I’ve ever really just designed from the ground up, so any advice/comments/criticism/cake is welcome. If anyone wants it, the SketchUp file is here
edit – the link is for the updated file, fixed some of the issues brought up below
edit – the link now links to the CORRECT updated file, oopsie :D
edit – okay now we’re up to v1.3 lol
-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.
