I poked around the interwebs for a number of months, mulling the different lumber cart designs found on this website as well as some of the lumber storage solutions built by my favorite Youtube woodworkers. I did not find anything with which I was enthralled enough to hunker down and actually build. I did draw up some rudimentary plans but I used them mainly for overall rough dimensions.
I built this cart while I was on a shop cleaning frenzy that lasted late into the morning a couple of weeks ago. Because of that, my criteria for building it were as follows:
>Must be built exclusively from material in the “Crap that I am Throwing Away” pile
>Must be built and filled with lumber before I go to sleep tonight
My construction methodology was quick and dirty: 18 ga. brad nails, #8 Torx deck screws, and construction adhesive. My materials were not exactly the fodder of fine carpentry: exterior lap siding, water-logged plywood sheathing, and scrap 2”x3” lumber. However, the finished product is exactly what I needed. I still need to incorporate storage for very short cut-offs which are still in buckets on the floor (visible in the third picture).
