So I was in need of a plywood cart. When I saw this design in Wood Magazine, I couldn’t resist. Not only does it store full sheets of plywood and cut-offs. It also functions as panel saw (crosscut only)

I wanted to get more practice on my newly purchased Jet 6in jointer and Ridid planer. So I jointed/ planned all my 2×4s. Or started to, till I realized I need to redue my hole dust collection system. (I couldn’t believe how much shavings you get from jointing 2×4s, even at 1/16th or less of an inch at each pass) I kept clogging up my 4in flex hose.

Actually this project is why I ran dust collection PVC piping to my machines.

So far love this thing, except for my 1 mistake in the build. I needed 96in long 2×4s. Well, for some reason I had 92in material. I was thinking this won’t be a problem. My sheet goods can hang off a couple inches on each side. Well after installing center divider and 2×4 braces (completing the build). I realized I can’t store 4ft cut offs in either the 2 half’s (opposite side of full sheets)

Oh well. Lol what can you do.

good addition to the shop! i would love to build if I had the space
I think the 92” are standard size wall studs for 8’ high rooms

Like the idea,- but as have that many tools & things in my workshop I don’t think it would work,- unless I modify the design so it will fit against the shed wall which I suppose defeats the original purpose,- what I really could do with is a multi-level work bench that I could move up, or down so I can work on multiple models at the same time.

I was worried about not having room for a much needed plywood cart either. They only free space I have in my garage/ workshop is parallel to the garage door. So when the garage door is shut I have it close to the garage door as possible. So that was I still have access to all my machines/ work area and if need be I can roll it on the driveway

Great build Trevor. You might want to be careful…that car looks like it is sneaking into your “shop man cave”
