I keep an inventory of hardwoods in my shop for projects.
My storage method leaves a lot to be desired. I can’t easily check my inventory, and it is hard to clean out the saw dust.
I decided it was time to build a movable cart to properly store my normal inventory of hardwoods. I usually buy red oak and maple in 6 foot lengths from Menards. I buy 24 inch lengths of padauk, yellow heart, purple heart, from Rockler.
I designed this cart in Google Sketchup. I had a scrap piece of 3/4” plywood for the base and the one shelf. The rest of the cart is built of 1×4’s from Lowes. I also bought 4 casters from Lowes.
I made this cart to store the hard wood inventory I keep in my shop. It is on casters, so you can roll it around.
I used Kreg pocket scews to build this cart.
I like this cart. It makes checking inventory easy to do. It is portable, and I can easily clean it with the shop vacuum. I don’t know why I waited so many years before doing this :)
If you are interested in my trials & tribulations of building this cart…...see my web site.
