There seems to be a lot of LJs getting starting spring cleaning early, particularly getting their lumber and sheet goods piles under control. About a month ago, I too jumped on the band wagon and finally built the materials cart that I had shared in my blog on SketchUp models for shop “furniture”.

The original plan was from ShopNotes Issue #55. I scaled it down to just 25” X 4’ to fit in my small shop.

Good job, feels good eh? I think you’re right; early spring cleaning seems to be catchy

The OSB is 19/32”. I wanted something closer to 3/4” but this was all the box store had. It is held together by pocket screws and glue.

Great idea, but first I need to build a shop cart like Mike’s in Norway, but the shop cart needs to come after building the garden bench, but by then I’ll be tripping over the scrap wood in the shop – too many projects and not enough time!! and then there’s my boss calling all the time asking, “Are you done yet?” I won’t even go into the “Honey Do” list(s).
