So after enough hints from people that I need to have a better storage system in place to store my lumber scrap I decided to design and build my own little mobile scrap cart.
It’s a very basic design using 3/4” plywood and 3/4” MDF and I used my trusty Kreg K4 pocket hole jig to assemble everything together.
I built the unit to fit in a specific space in my wood shop and the dimensions are 48” Wide x 24” deep x 24” High.
Below are some Of my Sketchup models
(Qty1) 4’x8’ sheet of 3/4” plywood ( base and 3 separating panels)
( Qty 1) 2’x2’ plywood ( Back)
1 2’x4’ of 3/4” MDF ( Cubby dividers)
pocket Hole Screws
Some Helpful Hint:
Because I was building this alone I need a stem to keep the side pieces at right angles to the back and as always my clamps are my 3rd hand so I came across this method online..
It’s basically a 10” piece of scrap cut at 45° at each end and then straight cut (90°) in the middle ( used pocket screws to connect, but you can use whatever method you want)
All 3 of the units side panels are almost identical ( almost)
There basically 2’x4’ panels cut out with my jigsaw saw ( measure 12” from back wall, measure 12” from bottom to the top and 12” from the outside in , then a draw a line between these 2 points to give the slope and repeat on all 3 boards.
The back panel is 2’x2’ and I placed pocket holes every 6” on each side and then on the bottom so you can screw the back into the floor and of course use glue)
I hope you like.
